‘Daring’… the Virus A TESOL Greece online event

25 April, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 28 June, 2020 @ 7:30 pm

A Message from the TESOL Greece Chair

Lilika Couri

” ‘Daring’ … the Virus”:

An effort to support, encourage, inform and inspire the members of our professional community. 

TESOL Greece would like to honour and thank all the teachers who were suddenly called upon to carry a heavy burden on their ‘digitally weak’ shoulders, as most of us were not fully prepared to move to online teaching within a day. And yet, we did and we continue doing so, trying our best. Fifty colleagues responded to the call of the TESOL Greece Board and are ready to share with us their knowledge and expertise and to send a message of empowerment, reassurance and hope that life goes on, inside the classroom or online. Our learners need our presence and our support.

Most important, they need to see us calm and positive, ready to share with them the challenges of change and of ‘new beginnings’.

On behalf of the TESOL Greece Board, I would like to thank our generous presenters. As a Chair, I would like to thank all the members of the Board for their support and assistance. I am grateful to Georgios Chatzis, TG Webmaster, without whose technological knowledge, imagination, tenacity and active presence this event would not have been possible.

Starting Saturday, April 25th till Sunday, June 28th, TESOL Greece members are invited to attend 30-minute webinars conducted by distinguished speakers in the ELT field.

We are looking forward to ‘meeting’ you online.

The ‘Daring’… the Virus Series of Webinars is Supported by:

Online Teaching and Learning: Staying Connected While Disconnected!

Online Teaching: The Toxic Influence of the Tech Expert.

During these times of externally imposed social distancing, online teaching has emerged as the only feasible alternative for educators. Admittedly, we were all unprepared. Teleconferencing platforms, online testing, learner assignments and assessment, etc., were definitely not staple components of our range of skills. Enter the Tech Expert. We surrendered unconditionally to this person’s education, training and knowledge. Who is s/he? A condescending Tech Expert? A Tech Professional, or a Tech Professional Mentor? Who would we wish on this journey of discovery and revelation?

Root and Branch: How Students Own Their Own English Stories

Stories expose and accentuate the many meanings of life; they tell us who we are and crucially who we could also be. Linguistic and emotional development happens when students have English-language ‘ownership’ of their own stories. This is done not just by re-telling, but by interacting with stories and harvesting their language and content. We will show how.
