The Macmillan Education Online Conference (MEOC) is back on 3rd November 2015 for another packed week of free webinars from ELT’s most inspiring authors and experts, including Adrian Underhill, Carol Read, Scott Thornbury and Dave Spencer.
MEOC 2015 gives teachers the chance to watch, learn and boost their teaching skills alongside thousands of others from around the world. With 19 webinars on offer over 5 days, there is something for teachers working in all settings and sectors, from Young Learners to Business and Exams. Over 20,000 teachers tuned in to last year’s conference and with even more talks and opportunities to interact, this year looks set to be the biggest yet!
Each of the first four days will focus on a different skill, covering speaking skills, exam skills, teaching skills and life skills. Teachers can learn how to create a positive learning environment with author Philip Prowse, find out how to engage an audience with public speaking expert Carol Noakes and discover how to build vocabulary with Macmillan Dictionary editor-in-chief Michael Rundell. The final day will be a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Macmillan’s first publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and includes a webinar on the language of Lewis Carroll and live readings of short stories written by students as part of the Macmillan Readers global writing competition.
Teachers will also have the chance to interact with the expert speakers after their presentations and will be invited to share their own responses and ideas online using the hashtag #MEOC2015.
Malcolm Mann, renowned author of various ELT courses, including Laser said:
“MEOC is a wonderful opportunity for teachers all round the world to come together without actually having to travel! The wide variety of webinars ensures there's something for everyone and the interactive software means it's not just a one-way process where the presenters present and the audience watch and listen. Everyone can share their thoughts, ideas and comments.”
2015 is the year of the teacher at Macmillan Education, celebrating their place at the heart of learning. The Macmillan Education Online Conference is just one of many ways Macmillan Education invests in training and support by helping teachers with their professional development and all delegates will receive a certificate to count as part of their official CPD requirements.
