A PLN for ELT Professionals

What would you like to talk about on November 13th?

Vote for your topic 

[polldaddy poll=7551587]
If you have an idea for a topic for Wednesday’s chat then leave it as a comment on the blog and we’ll include it in the poll once voting starts on Monday.

The top choice in the poll will be discussed at 12.00 p.m. and the 2nd choice at 21.00 p.m. GMT

Look up (a word) by Ian James on  #eltpics

Each week we alternate top and second choice.

Please bear in mind that if you are proposing a topic you should try and join the chat if it is chosen (though time zones can make that difficult). Please also note that the chat moderators do monitor the voting. There have been recent cases of block voting which has skewed and manipulated the polls. In such cases the votes will be disqualified and results of poll will be announced on our blog.

Since we started #ELTchat in September 2010, 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!

    Perhaps we should look at the Lexical Approach, as it didn’t get a lot of airing last time

    How do we actually know our ELT instruction was successful, apart from test results and other kinds of measurable evidence?

    Hello all!

    I’ve missed you all since I relocated to the UK and life has been manic which means I’ve missed a few chats..but I’m hopefully back and time to chat! Can my PLN help me??

    As part of my MA..I’m looking at whether we should teach standard or non-standard English in the EFL classroom today???? Is this a good topic for the ELTchatters???

    A teacher is supposed to teach technical English according to a university sylabus. What activities and tasks will be most appropriate? (The teacher is expected to give lots of input of tech English and test their tech vocab; and the drilling exercises are a bit out of fashion))
