Remember chat is at 21.00 This week

[polldaddy poll=7748789]

If you have an idea for a topic for Wednesday’s chat then leave it as a comment below this post and we’ll include it in the poll once voting starts on Monday. Since we now only have one chat a week, we’ll add the unsuccessful topics from the previous week to poll.

The top choice in the poll will be discussed at 21.00 p.m. GMT.

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”.

Check our summaries page to see if your idea has already been included in a past #ELTchat

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 to edit or reword a topic or not to include in the poll if it does not follow the above guidelines.

Before you propose a topic, do please check the  summaries page 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!

    Young learners and learner autonomy, how does it look in practice? (NB I have no pearls of wisdom to share, was hoping that others do…)(NB2 I may not be able to make the chat, it’s the busiest week coming up, courses ending and marking/reports with tight deadlines)

  2. Sue Annan says:

    How much should a teacher work outside their comfort zone? If they have a particular learning style, but their students are different, who should compromise? Are learning styles important?

    The value of a PLN

    How can we teach learners to tolerate ambiguity (unknown words) in texts or language they overhear?
