Suggest some topics for this week’s #ELTchat

Please post your topics for our next #ELTchat on Wednesday, July 20th. The highest polling suggestions from last week that were not chosen will automatically be added to this week’s poll but is there anything else that you think might make a good topic for Wednesday’s chat!

Top choice will be discussed at 12:00 PM & 2nd choice at 21:00 P.M.

All times are British Summertime times. Please click on the links above to find your own local time for each chat. Each week we alternate top and second choice.

How to choose topics for #ELTchat Discussions

Since we started #ELTchat last September, we have discussed a wide number of topics, but with many new members joining our conversations every week, it is very natural that we will get requests for topics which we “have done”.

Please, include topics which

  • have not been covered already in previous #ELTchats
  • are relevant to ELT teachers and teaching foreign languages
  • are not targeted attacks on individuals or institutions
  • are simply and clearly expressed.

The #ELTchat moderators reserve the right not to post comments or to include them in the poll if they do not follow the above guidelines.

Before you propose a topic, do please check the transcripts index on this blog or go to the #ELTchat wiki and click on the Transcripts or Summaries Links to see what has been covered so far.

If you see your topic but would still like to discuss a different aspect or set of issues, do submit it and we will consider including it again!

    Since Extensive reading was such a success last week (see http://wp.me/p15rqq-3n for summary), why not How do you promote Extensive Listening in your students? or is it too samey?

  2. A bit – the links of course would be different – so why not put it to the vote?

  3. How to deal with Mixed-Level Classes and Heterogeneous Groups.

  4. Daniela Arghir says:

    The value and/or usefulness of e-portfolios for teachers?

    hello everybody! yesterday I read an article about possible factors that may affect the use of technology on the part of EFL teachers and I found it really interesting. Nowadays technology in education is taken for granted. However, not all teachers use it in their classroom to the same extent. Therefore, it may a nice topic to explore all these factors (personal, social, practical, professional etc..)

    I’d like to discuss the #eltchat symposium at Iatefl Glasgow, and what skrt of themes. Ight be explored, but maybe there isn’t enough for a whole eltchat…?

      Hi Sharon,

      I am not sure that is a chat in itself – we do need to start a discussion on that as the registrations are now open, but I think perhaps it’s best to start with a blog post first?


  7. Hi Eleni – have you got a link to the article?

  8. Ty Kendall says:

    I was thinking about this as a topic:

    Career TEFLers vs Tourist TEFLers.

    How do TEFL professionals (who intend on making their career with EFL) feel towards those who only “dabble” or use it as a means to travel etc.

    Don’t think this has ever been done before?

  9. sultan says:

    How can we spend our time effectively with early finishers in class?

  10. Ty – I like it – it’s a subject close to my heart, too! Often an issue where I work and it’s just one of those aspects of the job.

    The great, celestial EFL roulette wheel spins every year and you never know what type of teacher you’re going to get. A challenge, definitely.
