PD 1 “ICT and Teaching: Collaborating to build knowledge?”

We have often heard there is fear of technology among educators. Some believe MOOCs will kill the class or that data will dehumanise college, or perhaps that e-books will kill the book. What is the current situation in our classrooms? How does ICT impact our teachers and students? Teaching and learning with ICT does not facilitate a common experience, but rather facilitates an experience each person can make their own, it allows for a different timing, and degree of awareness-raising.

PD 2 British Council Continuing Professional Development Framework & APIBA Professional Development Programmes

A language teacher’s career begins with initial training and grows into a lifelong journey where no two people take the same path. The British Council’s Continuing Professional Development Framework identifies six stages in a teacher’s career, from Starting to Specialist, and serves as a guide to the opportunities available to progress. Along these lines, APIBA will present Programmes that foster the continuing professional development of its Members and of teacher trainees at various stages of their careers: APIBA SIGs, APIBA Professional Issues SIG, APIBA Junior & Senior Programmes, APIBA Mentoring Programme.
