A New Form Of Professional Development For Members

As part of our on-going effort to provide more professional development opportunities for our members we would like to invite you to our first, hour-long, live, professional development seminar on Wednesday, December 1 at 7pm EST in Elluminate. Our guest will be educator and blogger, Shelly Terrell. Shelly is a widely known expert in teaching English  as a first and second language but she is also an expert in teaching teachers how they can use technology to reach out beyond the walls of their classroom. In her session entitled Creating Global Collaborative Partnerships, Shelly will talk to us about the many projects she has brought to her students in Germany and around the world and give us ideas on how we can do the same in our classrooms. We will also have time for you to ask questions.

Joining Elluminate is easy. 15-20 minutes before just click this link and you will be joined. NCTIES would like to thank Edublogs for allowing us to use this room.

We hope to do more of these types of sessions in the future. Visit the NCTIES Sigs and suggest what you would like to see next!

See you on Wednesday!
