This weeks link – good if you’re doing a TD course

October 12, 2009 Leave a comment

A slightly belated and a tad egotistic link this week. Late, as it should have been last week and egoistical as the link is to a site I helped put together though please be kind as it is still a work in progress.

For the last year or so, a friend (twitter @NikkiFortova) and I have been collating together things that might help people doing a more advanced teaching methodology course such as the Cambridge Modular Delta.  We will add a glossary for pre-service candidates in the near future.

We started it for the candidates on the course I work on at International House Prague as a place to exchange links, discuss terminology and so on.  Anyway at the end of the course in June , we realised that there was quite a bit on information on there so have spent the last few months tidying it up and putting it all on a moodle.  As I said, it is not quite finished yet but since a lot of extensive  Delta courses start around now, we thought we’d launch it to the world. Both Nikki and I are moodle obsessives so we also use the site to try out stuff that we can use on courses.

It has got to the point were it is tidy enough for people to use so we invite anyone interested to make use of it and equally as important add to it.  Amongst the resources on there are two wikis, which we have been building – one of EFL terminology and one a collection of blogs and links that we have collected from various tweets and other sources. Neither is complete so if your site is not there, please add it.

To get to the site, please click here and then enter Delta Potpourri as a guest (though if you want to make an account feel free).

We hope you find the site useful and if have any suggestions for what to add to it please let us know.

Oh and my blog is about to move, a colleague has given me some hosting space so hopefully, I’ll be able to give you the new url next week.

Until then, have a good teaching week,

Shaun  (and Nikki)
