Wednesday 17th March

  1. Here’s another of the ECML’s project micro-sites, this one on teacher competences for languages in education: https://www.ecml.at/ECML-Programme/Programme2016-2019/TowardsaCommonEuropeanFrameworkofReferenceforLanguageTeachers/tabid/1850/Default.aspx Lots of material, including a short introductory video. I’ve attached the project flyer below.

2. Three good recent posts on the Oxford English Language Teaching Global Blog:

Erika Osváth on digital burnout https://oupeltglobalblog.com/2021/02/22/digital-burnout-students/

Ruth Gairns and Stuart Redman on learning vocabulary https://oupeltglobalblog.com/2021/03/15/learning-english-vocabulary-2/#more-15534

Charlotte Murphy on student engagement online https://oupeltglobalblog.com/2021/03/01/student-engagement-online/3.

If you’re still not quite 100% confident using break-out rooms in Zoom, you should read this guide written by a self-proclaimed geek Joe Fedewa for non-geeks like you and me https://www.howtogeek.com/717822/how-to-use-breakout-rooms-in-a-zoom-meeting/

4. The next webinar from the Lancaster Literacy Research Centre http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/literacy-research-centre/ is at 11:00 UK time this Friday, 19th March: ‘Transitions in students writing: what do we know from theory and research?’ with Soledad Montes Sánchez from Chile, who’ll be looking at the transition from school to university, with a particular focus on disadvantaged students.
