Returning Teacher Training Scheduled for January 24, 2021

ESLIM is happy to announce that our training for returning teachers will take place on Sunday, January 24, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM via Zoom.

Participants will practice using Zoom (whiteboard, screen sharing, breakout rooms, and polling) to engage ESL students in communicative language learning with a focus on student-student interaction. The training will also provide an introduction to and practice in using web-based technologies, such as kahoot, flipgrid, padlet, and Google Docs.

Our trainer will be Cyn Hatch, the associate director of the American Culture and Language Institute at NOVA.

Interested teachers are invited to register by sending contact information, including name, phone number, and the name of the church where they teach, to [email protected] by January 13. A limited number of seats are available.

Upon registering, participants will receive a link to a brief online questionnaire (due January 14) that Cyn has created which will help her to better assess their needs and interests; they will also receive a link to use for the training session. The office will send a reminder email on Saturday, January 23.

Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to help your students develop communication skills! We look forward to hearing from you.
