Voluntary Work

Voluntary Work

Other than training and consulting, I volunteer for these three wonderful initiatives and organisations. If you are interested in collaborating with one of these, please contact me.

#ELTchat

Every Wednesday at 19.00 GMT, English Language Teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a practical topic related to teaching and learning English.

The aim of #ELTchat is to create a freely available social network of ELT professionals offering mutual support and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development. Since 2016, I have been honoured to be part of the moderation team.

 

IATEFL, International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language

For over 50 years, IATEFL has been linking, developing, and supporting English Language Teaching professionals worldwide. It is a global professional membership association and a UK registered charity. At IATEFL, we support teachers and other ELT professionals in their professional development and provide a platform where they can offer their views, exchange research and teaching experiences and learn from each other.

Since 2016, I have been a member of IATEFL’s executive Conference Committee, working with members of IATEFL Head Office to ensure that IATEFL’s annual conference and exhibition are a professional and financial success.

 

IATEFL Teacher Development Special Interest Group (TDSIG)

Formed by Adrian Underhill in 1985, TDSIG was the first distinct IATEFL SIG. To this day, TDSIG provides a forum for us to develop our potential as teachers, to cultivate our abilities to navigate the challenges and successes of being a teacher, and to invigorate satisfaction in our ongoing work.

Since 2017, I have been on the committee of the SIG, responsible for co-ordinating face-to-face events.
