Just a quick post spreading the word about an online CPD event taking place this coming Sunday (20 March). A group of teachers in Russia is organizing a one-day online conference focusing on Technologies in teaching English, as well as a range of ELT topics. The abstracts look very exciting, and I’m really looking forward to the event (also very happy to have been invited to give a workshop). Check out the abstracts at the conference website (below is a quick overview of the sessions). If you find something that’s of interest to you, see you there!
