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  21:00 & 2nd choice at    12:00 PMP.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!

    Hows about ‘How will you follow up on #RSCON3?’

  2. Shaun says:

    At the end of last week’s chat you Marisa suggested ‘The resposibilities of those who hire”, do you want it added Marisa?

    Is dogme possible with adult beginners?

  4. Let’s add it – yes!

    (to Shaun)


  5. I don’t know that I’ve seen this one in the transcripts: Are students are friends ? What are your boundaries, and how do you demarcate them ?

  6. OK, I have a few suggestions for you, based on what I’ve been interested in recently

    a) Mentoring and coaching of teachers in ELT
    b) Ways of using technology to promote speaking practice for homework
    c) Social media isn’t all it’s made out to be – Discuss (see http://tinyurl.com/3c9wxmn)
    d) Twitter isn’t the best platform for #eltchat
    e) Paper books are on their way out – e-books are the future for education

    Hi Graham,

    Super suggestions but as there are so many I am going to save a few for next week, if you don’t mind – we covered mentoring and homework in previous chats so am going to save those and use the other three – though I am not sure if ‘d’ has an hour’s worth of discussion in it.
