This is the first of an open, ongoing course designed for anyone interested in teaching English to students of other languages. Pre and in-service teachers, trainers, instructors, facilitators, coaches, etc. will have opportunities to share perspectives, ideas, and experiences as we all search for ways to improve curriculum, assessment, and instruction in English language teaching and learning. If you have an interest in helping English language learners improve their understandings, knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, you are encouraged to take part in an ongoing discussion that promotes creativity, criticality, and caring! This first session provides an overview of the course, some of the technologies involved, and what to expect going forward. I look forward to your future contributions!
