International House World Organisation recently held its 8th annual Teachers Online Conference for language teachers. The full day event was open to all language teachers worldwide, and saw teachers from all over the IH network presenting on a wide range of ideas and advice for the language classroom. There were 28 ten minute presentations from English teachers and 7 one hour sessions from teachers of other languages – French, Russian, Arabic and German. Participants gathered in the online conference room and there was much interesting discussion around the presentations and a sense of camaraderie and interaction despite the attendants not physically being in the same place.
The conference has generated a wealth of useful resource for teachers and IHWO would like to share these with teachers so they can take advantage of them. The materials (presentation slides and video recordings) are all available on the conference blog here: https://sites.google.com/site/ihtoc2016/
