Here is a screenshot from the first ever International House World Facebook Live, featuring me and Giuliana Faldetta:
The topics we covered were:
- avoiding teacher burnout
- helping new teachers combat homesickness
- what to do if a teacher refuses to teach a particular age group, but there is nobody else who can take the class
- how you can encourage new teachers to engage in CPD
- what CELTA trainers can do to prepare trainees for the reality of teaching
The recording is available here, though I believe you need a facebook account to watch it. You can also add comments and further questions to the recording.
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on what we discussed, and what else you’d like to know if you are a new teacher or if you work with new teachers.
