Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Oxford University Press, I’ll be giving at talk at the 41st annual Thai TESOL Conference in late January. This will be a similar talk to the one I gave at the Vietnam TESOL conference in the fall. I’m afraid this one is virtual, too, but at least it gives me the opportunity to interact with lots of teachers in Asia without leaving the cold comforts of a Vermont winter. The talk is scheduled for 9:40 a.m. on Saturday, January 22nd, Bangkok time. That, however is 9:40 p.m. on Friday, January 21, on the east coast of the U.S. You do need to register for this conference. More information on registration can be found here. Here’s the abstract:
Meeting the challenges of online instruction
At a time when most of us are still teaching remotely or in hybrid conditions many teachers are facing challenges in daily instruction. How can we keep students motivated? How do we encourage critical thinking? What is the best way to make use of the digital tools we have? And how can we manage these challenges when we return to face-to-face instruction? In this session we will explore how teachers can address these issues and include practical techniques that teachers can use in the classroom with students.
