american english webinars

The American English Webinar Series will be offered in Fall 2016 and consists of 6 live webinars offered on alternating Wednesdays. The 6 online seminars of the course cover a variety of topics and are intended for teachers of English or future teachers of English around the world.

The American English Webinar Series aims to improve the quality of English language teaching. These interactive online seminars introduce foreign English language teaching (ELT) educators to learner-centered teaching methods. Participants directly interact with the U.S. English language teaching expert presenters and their ELT colleagues worldwide. Participants are also invited to join the online social networking community of ELT professionals, which offers readings, resources, discussion forums, and recordings of the webinars. One of the goals of this adaptive tool is to expand outreach to the English teaching community and build connections between the teaching community and the U.S. Embassy, as well as provide access to current teaching methods for teachers.

Dates: September 7, September 21, October 5, October 19, November 2, and November 16, 2016.

Each 60-minute webinar will be held every other Wednesday at 8:00am Washington time (at 14:00 Brussels time – except on November 2 when it will be held at 13:00). The webinars are free of charge.

American English Webinar Series participants should be current or future ELT professionals (e.g., pre-service teachers, teachers, teacher trainers, program administrators). They should be highly motivated individuals who are dedicated to their own professional development and to sharing the knowledge they gain with colleagues in their local area. Candidates must:

– Be a citizen of or reside in Belgium or Luxembourg at the time of the course, and
– Have access to a reliable computer with internet connectivity and speakers or a headset
