2012 Workshops
We are excited to announce that the second International House Teachers’ Online Conference will take place throughout Friday May 25th 2012. Celebrating 50 years of teacher training around the IH World, the conference is a great opportunity to bring together IH teachers of all languages to share experiences and ideas and learn from one another.

The conference will involve over 20 teacher development workshops and plenary sessions full of practical ideas grounded in EFL theory, presented by IH teachers for IH teachers. All you need to attend the workshop is an internet connection and a headset with microphone.

Recent Feedback

"Sharing your experiences is always something positive as it often doesn’t happen in the daily work situation, as everybody is just too busy." "I learnt I enjoyed working online, it was the first course I had done like this and it was better than expected"
"I learnt loads – particularly useful were tips on classroom management techniques from other teachers to use with students with special needs (and in fact all students!)"
"I particularly liked input sessions on phonology, vocabulary, discourse analysis and all 4 skills. These sessions were especially informative and accessible and proved to be of immediate use."
"I think it was a very good course, hard work but very useful. I can see it not only in my teaching, but in the comments I make on the lessons I observe and in the lesson planning sessions with inexperienced teachers."
"excellent course notes: succinct, informative, helpful"
"We had great tutors and it was a pleasure to work with them. If I had any questions, our tutors answered them very carefully and in detail."
"I am extremely enthusiastic about this course. I was told that the course was good by a former course participant, but it has surpassed all expectations."
"I just want to say thanks to everyone who took part in creating this course and those involved in doing this particular COLT. I have benefited a lot from it."
"This is a great course that I would recommend to anyone even vaguely intrigued by what online learning is about…or totally adverse to it (I am sure they would change their mind!)"
