Error correction is something I have been thinking a lot about recently. This was partly motivated by Luiz Otávios plenary (which I wrote about here), but also because I have been observing lessons every week as a Celta tutor in training.
Last Friday I had the opportunity to take part in the first Braz-Tesol’s Teacher Development SIG event in São Paulo. I’m going to summarize the highlights of the workshops I attended and also share something I do in order to develop my English whenever I attend seminars or conferences.
If you don’t live in São Paulo, some of the same speaker will be at the Braz-tesol’s local chapter event in Goiania this Friday.
Last Thursday I had the chance to take part in a webinar by Higor Cavalcante, which you can watch below. He talked about the importance of language development for teachers and it got me thinking about both language development and professional development as a whole. So today I’m writing about the steps I think teachers can take to become better professionals.
