Global Staffroom - April!
A monthly online, global 'staffroom' space for English-language educators.
- Online via Zoom - you'll be sent your Zoom link to join closer to the time!
Facilitated by Upskilling For Change Founding Members, this space is a safe, friendly environment for educators interested in networking and their own professional development to connect with others in the field. We believe that we are always stronger together. Collaborative learning and sharing is at the heart of everything we do. These Global Staffroom sessions are not themed, they are a space in which we can get together, connect, and learn from each other. Who is this for? Anyone working in English-language education. We understand that many of us are increasingly isolated in our jobs, without sufficient investment from our employers in our training and professional development. Many of us have little contact with other teachers and few chances to connect with others to discuss problems, solutions, and ideas. This is a place to think aloud and openly, to expand your thinking, listen to the experiences of other teachers in other places, hear new ideas, and feel connected with and passionate about your work! Format Each session is designed and facilitated to be a relaxed, casual, friendly space. You don't need to prepare for these sessions - we know you have enough to do already! We'll use breakout rooms to encourage networking as well as guided discussion in the main room. Come prepared to talk! We'll encourage discussion and ensure the climate in the room stays respectful, kind, and safe.
