I teach language. I’ve taught in adult language schools, briefly in high schools and for a long time I taught on the MBA prep programme that ran in the Institute of Business in Istanbul University. Currently I teach for ESP, a company that specializes in providing courses in business English.
I also train teachers. I did a little in service work, became a Delta trainer, went on to work on ICELT and then CELTA courses as well, but lately have focused exclusively on Delta and currently work for ITI Istanbul and the Distance Delta in different but complementary roles.
I try to get people to notice things, understand things, do things that I think will help them learn – language learners, English teachers and more recently Delta tutors – and lately I’ve realised that I’m not taking as much of my own advice as I used to. This is an attempt to address that lack.
I wrote a chapter in a book with Tom recently about developing the Module One course. You can download it from here or here.
I did a Webinar on development for teachers in Turkey for the BC for teachers in 2012 and the recording is here.
The ITI home page.
The ITI Moodles.
The Distance DELTA.
The language school I work for is called ESP. and I often make wikis for classes like this one. or recently I’ve been persuaded to branch out into other territories.
I have a new project in a site for people who are preparing for Delta or waiting to do a Module. Though it is only a few pages so far.
