If you are proposing a topic, please make every effort to join the chat if your topic is chosen. You can find out information about how to follow an #ELTchat here. Please also note that the chat moderators do monitor the voting. Cases of block voting are followed up and, in such a case, 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”.

    My proposed topic is: Looking back, what would you like to have more/less of in your initial teacher training experience(s)?

    I suppose that should read “have had” in my topic proposal above…need coffee! 😉

    The idea being to reflect on what we actually ended up needing/doing/learning VS what we were trained to focus on. Are there gaps? Can training really *directly* inform us anyway, or simply set us up for professional learning? What would our ‘dream TEFL course’ entail, and why? I don’t know if this kind of thing has been discussed before, but it might be interesting for us to share about our own initial training up experiences, and imagine our our training program from where we are now.

  3. I’m suggesting a topic but will not be able to participate in the chat, am afraid!! 🙁
    The topic is: “How to integrate QR Codes for Reading, WRiting, Listening and Speaking.” Could we also put it off for next week?
