Sun July 14 – Reach2Share Summer Conference

My social networks are lighting up with artifacts showing webinars that, when I find out about, have already happened


Reach2share is based here, https://reach2share.com/. There are tabs at the top that page pointing to blog, https://reach2share.com/community/l and community. The community space points to a Facebook Group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/reach2share/ That’s where the conference announcements are. In order to join the group, you must first join the community Moodle.

The Facebook page invites you to register yourself at the Zoom meetings.

These meetings appear to have taken place July 14. I just discovered that I was sent a message on Twitter July 9 inviting me to this meeting. I only saw it a week later, my bad 😦

Ah, the courses themselves are not free

I wish Nellie and her presenters all success and in no way disagree with paid courses or fair compensation to presenters. This is a step in the right direction, and is further evidence of Nellie Deutsch’s  commitment to both her network of presenters and to continuing to provide both free and paid content to their audience 🙂

 

July 20 1300 UTC NNEST webinar on The NNEST Movement – Foundations and New Directions

Ana Solano-Campos has announced on myTESOL Lounge July 12, 2019

that NNEST is holding their first webinar of the year: “The NNEST Movement: Foundations and New Directions.”

Please RSVP via the following link:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-nnest-movement-foundations-and-new-directions-tickets-65280202844

According to the link,

The purpose of the webinar is to (re)introduce members to the NNEST movement and to explore the different theoretical perspectives framing the study of marginalization and privilege in ELT. There are three guest speakers:

  • Dr. Lia Kahmi-Stein, California State University
  • Yasemin Tezgiden, Winner of the 2019 Outstanding Paper in NNEST Issues, Middle East Technical University
  • Seyma Toker, NNEST IS newsletter Co-Editor, Georgetown University

THey will address topics such as “what is native speakerism?” “how is the term ‘native speaker’ understood?” “what should I know about how people position themselves and are positioned by others as ‘native’ or ‘nonnative’ speakers?” “what new scholarship has emerged in our field?”why is knowing more about native speakerism important for my role as an ELT professional?”

As she has announced to all and encouraged all to share, I believe that all are welcome at this event, that it is not restricted to TESOL members
