Nives' endeavours as an English Teacher

IATEFL Glasgow 2017 Conference


Tune in for live coverage from Glasgow on Monday 3rd April


The once a year grand event for IATEFL is about to begin, it’s just days away and there already is a flurry of activity going on behind the scenes to get everything ready and rolling. In fact the first day on Monday officially opens the doors to the Online live team for their insights into the final preparations as the Conference gets underway. The online live team consists of Nik Peachy, Kirsteen Donaghy, Roohi Malik – looking forward to this wonderful trio with loads of expertise in professional development for teachers and teaching too!

I am so excited and proud to be a part of the Registered Bloggers for the online event, in fact last year being my first encounter did not come without some technical upheavals! Overall it was a great learning curve and marvelous experience, hence my total faith in giving it my best again this year.

The on the road roving reporter Rob Howard the mastermind behind EFL TALKS was kind enough last year to furnish some inside info and great pics! This year I have twisted his arm to help again, he has agreed YEAY!! Have also pinned Judy Wong on board with some insider pics! So stay tuned for some live insights and hopefully just as equally interesting posts covering the Online Live Coverage. There will be some videos and personal views to be shared with you, so if you haven’t signed up to follow my blog then do so now to be well informed of what’s going down at IATEFL Glasgow 2017 where the great minds gather to discuss pertinent topics related to Teaching and Teacher Professional Development.

Now if you’re wondering how to go about becoming a Registered Blogger then just click the blogger image above to go to the website page, follow the instructions and wait for a confirmation email. Good luck, but be quick time’s running short! See you online!

As Winter rolls in the Southern hemisphere, the Northern hemisphere bids a warm welcome to Spring. I will be watching and following the event live on the website, twitter and Facebook all from my comfy chair in Melbourne, Australia. Only drawback is that most of the afternoon sessions will be during the wee hours of the night! However I am only too keen to participate as much as I can without falling asleep on my keyboard or at least catch up the next morning while the conference sleeps off the days activities… or do they get any sleep? I wonder!
