Teacher Training Webinar Series 2018

Trinity College London is delighted to announce the 2018 teacher training webinar series for English language teachers. These webinars are designed for teachers who prepare students for four-skills English tests, and contain specific reference to Trinity’s Integrated Skills in English (ISE) exam. 

This series of 21 webinars aims to provide teachers with a deeper understanding of how students learn English language reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and looks at practical ways teachers can help students to improve. Whilst the webinars refer to Trinity exams, they also support teachers’ continuous professional development (CPD) and can help improve everyday teaching practices for integrating and teaching all four skills.

These interactive webinars each contain:

  1. An introductory video from Robin Walker - Trinity Academic Consultant, Spain
  2. An informative discussion between two members of Trinity’s academic team from various countries covering the webinar theme in detail and exploring practical ideas that can be used in the classroom
  3. An opportunity to ask questions

Teachers from all countries are invited to register. The webinars are free and you can join individual webinars or attend the whole series. The webinars are held on alternate Wednesdays at 13:00, UK time.
