Meet our Online Presenters
We're delighted to welcome back our presenters Kirsteen, Nik and Rob for another IATEFL Online. If you have any questions for them, please post a comment in the box below.
I’m an E-learning Consultant with the British Council. Which means I manage and develop TeachingEnglish online professional development courses for teachers. I am based in Malaysia, but meet and work with trainers, moderators and teachers all over the world. This is my fifth year with IATEFL Online and I absolutely love our unique experience at IATEFL as we get to discuss the headlining changes in ELT directly with the key speakers at the conference. It's a great way to taste what's going on in the conference and provide lots and lots of ideas and food for thought to teachers who couldn't make it to the conference in person.
I'm a freelance trainer, writer and consultant. Manchester is my seventh year working with the IATEFL Online team, and just like in previous years, I'm looking forward to speaking to presenters and delegates from around the world during the conference - both familiar and new faces.
Since 1992 I have worked all over the world as a language trainer, teacher trainer, project manager, author and consultant. I have worked with some of the most influential educational companies and publishers around the world including Google, International House, British Council, Bell Educational Services, BBC, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Macmillan, Pearson, The Open University and many others.
In 2012 I won The Innovations award for Excellence in Course innovation for the Blended Learning in ELT course I developed for Bell Educational Services.
My ebook Web 2.0 Tools for Teacher, released in 2009 has been read more than 200k times online. I also have two more books planned for launch this year. These are 'Creativity in language teaching', which I co-edited with Alan Maley and 'Digital Video' which is my own publication. At present I am Head of Learning at EnglishUp - an innovative online school for language learning.
