Classroom-Based Research for Professional Development

DIY Online Assessment   

With the quick development of technology in education there has come a fervent need for applying different assessment techniques regularly whether formative or summative ones. Yet what kind of assessment should we use? Thus I would to help the attendees to work with me online through their mobiles or ipads to share in applying different apps to see how easy it is to use them and apply them at their schools.

EVO ViLLAGE 2017   

This EVO session focuses on applying games in virtual teaching – using ideas from f2f (face to face) and transferring them to virtual language learning.We aim to create new games in virtual worlds using the affordances these immersive environments have to offer and are making machinima (videos) to demonstrate how the games work.


We learn to build, texture and script our games for fun in language learning.

Flipped Learning   This five-week online workshop is designed for both those new to flipped learning and those who are already flipping their classes. In flipped learning, content delivery takes place outside of class freeing the instructor to focus class on interactive, collaborative projects and activities for maximum language acquisition in a meaningful context. Participants will practice with various video creation tools, gain skills in curating already existing media, and will learn how to effectively incorporate these resources into their teaching practices. Of course, whenever possible, the workshop employs a flipped approach!

Non-native English Speakers in TESOL

In this discussion-based session, participants will explore conceptualizations of and approaches to teachers' lived experiences negotiating identity and fluid privilege-marginalization in the discursive field of English language education.

QR Codes in Action




QR Codes are everywhere and they are all in “action” but have you thought about using them with your students?As teachers we need to start to think outside the box and start using them in our classes in new and creative ways. Therefore,we will be looking at different methods to create and use them in class in a fun way. This session hopefully will inspire everyone about these magical codes and add another string to your professional bow. So join us to combine ease, speed and creativity to enrich your lessons.

Teaching Pronunciation Differently  

All teachers have tried to teach pronunciation using 'listen and repeat', and most of us have found the results unsatisfactory. 

But there is a different way, and it works very well. 

The 'Articulatory Approach' teaches students what to do with their mouths to sound right. 

Join us in TPD 2017 to explore how to teach pronunciation this way. 

Go to www.schoology.com and Sign Up (top right). Choose the 'Student' option and use 52DVQ-ZJJWV as the course code.

Choose the 'Courses' tab to access TPD 2017 for the first time.

On future visits, you can go straight to the session via www.tpd.today

CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning - is a "dual focus" methodology, fostering the development of language competences and the delivery of subject content at the same time.

It referes to the learning of a curricular subject in a foreign language, with great advantages in terms of students' learning outcomes and cognitive processes. 

CLIL is spreading more and more, as an integrated part of school curricula in many countries. In order to implement this innovative approach, the role of teacher training is essential.

This EVO session is aimed at spreading CLIL methodology, combining teaching strategies and technical tools and eliciting reflections and discussions among teachers from all over the world. It is important to share good practices from the different countries and learn from other colleagues through synchronous and asynchronous web meetings.

Webinars with national and international CLIL experts will be a highlight of this session.


 A Moodle platform will be used for this session.
