IATEFL Webinar with Jeremy Harmer - July 27

jeremy-harmer.jpgThis time tomorrow you'll be able to tune in to watch one of ELT's leading lights. Jeremy Harmer will be holding a webinar on IATEFL BESIG on July 27 from 3pm to 4pm (BST).

The theme of the event is 'Yes, but why do we need teachers at all?'

We all think that teachers should motivate their students and help them to become successful learners - but what does that actually mean? And what is the balance of 'the-teacher-as-motivator', and the teacher who knows - and knows how to help students know? Furthermore, in a world where people are offering digital solutions to learning problems, how has/will the teacher's role change?

This session will look at opinions from English language teaching - and from outside the field - to come up with a new way of looking at how we can help our students to be more effective.

Jeremy - a frequent presenter, seminar leader and teacher both in the UK and, more frequently, around the world - currently works as as an online tutor for the MATESOL at The New School, New York.
