CO15 : Micro Teaching in Pairs


Well finally I’m getting some time to update the information on my intervention in the Online Conference CO15 – Connecting Online 2015 organized by Dr Nellie Deutsch and run by the WizIQ platform.

The intervention was in conjunction with my online pair Teacher Thomas Hodgers and our slide presentation now on slideshare is shared with my readers here too.

Our experience in Micro Teaching is the culmination of much hard work and many online hours in research and communication that participating in the CO15 became a natural extension. We (Tom and I) have also collated our work into a book chapter which is now under review and hopefully will be accepted for publishing. I will keep you my faithful readers updated on any movements in that direction.

Presently Tom and I are working on an Action Research project and also recently prepared a WebQuest as part and parcel of our continuing learning experience in the course Teaching with Technology organized by Dr Nellie Deutsch on WizIQ. You will be able to follow our work and other meanderings on Tom’s blog of which I too am a part of – albeit a little behind in my blog posts as you will no doubt have noticed even from my own word press blog (s) that have been left in the land of no-words …

Some might downplay my lack of time and blame it on ‘time management’ but I will have you know that I plan my moments (minutes and hours) to the very narrowest of possibilities – I am after all a creature of structure and rules as without I would be lost. (And not in space !) In my honest opinion without a time structure for my own work of giving language lessons from preschoolers, to high school, to tutoring, to online teaching and to management levels – all hell would break loose !!

Then how would we put this lack of updating the blog site (s) be seen by you – my reader? I dare ask if you would so kindly add your say below I would be ever grateful, thank you.
