Winter PD - February 17, 2016

The weather outside was a little frightful, or at least cold, but we're glad that didn't stop our TESL London members from coming out to LLI to join us for an evening that explored how we can continue to grow as ESL educators. I left the event that night with a feeling of awe and a newfound respect for the dedication that our presenters have for empowering teachers through courses offered as PTCT (Post TESL Certificate Training).  

Session 1-ACE TESOL Courses 

Paula Medina and 
Stefanie Sosa  presented on ACE TESOL courses.  The range and variety of ACE programs is impressive.  Grammar courses, technology courses are just some of the options available.  I was like a kid in the candy store - thinking I want that one, then that one, and oh, maybe that one too...

Session 2- Obtaining a Masters in TESOL 

The presenters for this session included Brian Courtney, Jennifer Jones  and Bei Zhang.  Members were treated to their experiences, which were onilne, blended, or traditional.  Institutes in British Columbia, Western University and The New School (New York), were discussed, with each presenter speaking candidly about their time and efforts getting their Masters.
