On May 25th International House World will hold its second online teachers conference as part of the ongoing celebrations for 50 years of IH Teacher Training.
As part of the celebrations we intend to make aspects of the conference open to all, so watch out for details of that. We’d also like to have a running theme throughout the day based on the number 50.
Following this theme, we will be sharing 50 Tips with teachers and teacher trainers and this is where we need your help.
It doesn’t matter if you work for an IH school or not, teach in a state school or a private language school, whether you love dogme or a coursebook – what we need are your ideas!
To make it easier we have come up with five categories for suggestions
Tips for new teachers
Best tips for classroom management
Tips for CPD
Things that make a special teacher
Materials-free, student-centred tasks
Between now and the week of the conference we are hoping to have hundreds of your suggestions pouring in by the sack-load! We’ll then look over the suggestions and choose 10 for each category. These tips will then be presented to you at the online conference.
After the conference we’ll share them all on a blog and in the IH Journal. We may even have a vote to decide the best tip of all.
So do you have a few minutes to spare? Please go to this link and enter a suggestion. You don’t have to give a suggestion for every category and you are more than welcome to go back again and again to add more suggestions – the more the merrier!
Thanks for giving us your time. Tune in to the social media channels and conference on May 25th to find out what was suggested.
