Thursday, 5th January (Cambridge, just)

1. Two from the TeachingEnglish site to start with:

a) A three-module, four-week, nine-hour course on Teaching English through literature, developed in partnership with Macmillan India https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/teaching-english-through-literature

b) Maria Jose Galleno from Uruguay talking about effective strategies for enabling teacher reflection at 12:00 UK time on Thursday 12th January, Making it obvious – reflection that works https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/maria-jose-galleno-making-it-obvious-reflection-works

‘Reflective teacher practice’ is often paid lip service to; Maria Jose takes things a step further.

2. Starting next Friday, 13th January, there’s a whole free three-day (say that quickly) conference from the IATEFL YLT (Young Learners & Teenagers) SIG: more info here https://yltsig.iatefl.org/events/iatefl-yltsig-web-conference-2023-better-together/

If you’re a member of the YLTSIG, you can also sign up for a six-hour mini-course.

3. Day 2 of The New York Times Seven Day Happiness Challenge: The Secret Power of the 8-Minute Phone Call https://tinyurl.com/9kujksuf

Nice idea!

4. And, finally, a bee in the Cross bonnet, originating in my inability to even give away to a charity shop my CD collection:

a (quite technical) video, The Truth About Vinyl – Vinyl vs. Digital https://youtu.be/lzRvSWPZQYk

and a (more accessible) article https://www.diffen.com/difference/CD_vs_Vinyl_Record
