This is a one day professional development event organized by the State Secretariat of Piauí in Teresi na. The event is scheduled for August 8 and will include a keynote, panel, and workshop from an English Language Specialist. The event is being planned and implemented by the Secretariat and is dedicated to exploring methods and strategies with regards to live and recorded online lessons and activities during this world pandemic.
This project provides critical resources to support teachers in this region in a very challenging time for public education. Many teachers have been required to record lessons and also give live interactive classes on conferencing and platform programs without proper preparation, time for learning, or adequate support. This has been especially challenging for the encouragement of communicative skills in groups and managing multi lev el classrooms with new tools.
Teaching is one of the professions that is never able to stand still for long as it's an constant evolving profession, where the individual must maintain
professional development in conjunction with the speed in which new ski lls and knowledge are founded. Pandemics or other disruptions to education may reoccur and/or online and conference teaching methods may swing towards becoming the preferred delivery of lessons. For these reasons, the secretariat is committed to providing learning opportunities for teachers to experiment with and employ new teaching experiment with and employ new teaching strategies for the immediate and unforeseen strategies for the immediate and unforeseen future.future.
Our goal for this O-TTD is to enable participants to explore the tools and resources to promote and support to live and recorded online lessons and activities in times of crisis, as well as having a better understanding of strategies for teaching online and emergency remote teaching
As EFL teachers, many of the challenges we face are similar during this pandemic, despite whether we live in Brazil or the United States.
We look forward to sharing the best practical experiences and lessons learned from our Language Specialist and workshop facilitator that will share some practical tools and ideas about how to make online classes more effective for language learning as well as receiving an inspiring message from the keynote speaker which I am sure, will uplift our spirit in these unusual times.
It is high time that such an event takes place, to highlight the remarkable contribution that our fellows educators make in different educational contexts, revealing the diversity, of which these teaching strategies may be utilized.
Our hope is that as you leave this O-TTD, you will have a renewed energy and spirit to teach.
The On the other hand, the O-TTD offers an excellent opportunity for you to meet the RELO Brazil Director Jennifer Uhler, the Deputy Director Helmara de Moraes and The English Language Specialist Barbara L. Noel.
