The American Center in Moscow invites pre-service and in-service English language teachers to join a series of online viewing sessions of the “American English Live: Teacher Development Series 17” webcasts every other Thursday from May 18, 2023, through July 27, 2023, at 11 a.m. MSK and 4 p.m. MSK.
These sessions are held on Zoom and include viewing a webcast and a follow-up discussion of the webcast. At the end of each webinar, participants can complete a short quiz to earn a digital participation badge. Additionally, participants who attend 4 out of 6 online viewing and discussion sessions can earn an e-certificate.
During American English Live Series 17 — six free professional development webinars for English language teachers around the world — we’ll explore how to develop critical thinking skills in the first two webinars, and the remaining sessions will enhance your knowledge about inclusive teaching practices.
The participants who attend 4 out of 6 online viewing and discussion sessions hosted by the American Center in Moscow on Zoom will earn an e-certificate from the Regional English Language Office. To qualify for an e-certificate, you need to attend sessions of 4 out of 6 webinars on Zoom and fill out an attendance form during each session. The viewing sessions take place every other Thursday from May 18, 2023, through July 27, 2023. You can sign up for each session by clicking the links below.
On June 29, during the session "Plurilingualism and Translanguaging Strategies for Language Teachers and Students," Chris Hastings will demonstrate how including students’ first language (L1) in the ELT classroom offers the potential for innovative and nuanced communication and understanding in both students’ L1 and L2—participants will discover activities that can be adapted for students of all ages and levels.
