Webinar Announcement: Teacher Development Series 2

The American English team is pleased to offer American English Live: Teacher Development Series 2 on the American English for Educators Facebook page. The six online seminars of the series cover a variety of topics intended for teachers of English or future teachers of English around the world. At the end of each event, participants will have the opportunity to earn a digital badge that verifies their participation. Viewing group hosts, Public Affairs Offices, and Regional English Language Offices also have the option to issue e-certificates for those who attend four out of six sessions.

Participants are encouraged to follow us on the American English for Educators Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AmericanEnglishforEducators. Discussion questions and links to related materials will be posted there. Participants are also encouraged to register to join the associated Ning, http://americanenglishwebinars.com, to participate in discussions, view related materials, and find recordings.

The series will take place from May 2 – July 11, 2018.  The 60-minute sessions will be held every other Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. EDT from Washington, D.C. (check http://timeanddate.com for the local time in your region).
