September to-do list

New school year, new resolutions, I love resolutions, and I love to-do lists!

6th September – IATEFL SIG webinar (YL) Joe Dale  ‘Producing & Sharing Personalised multimedia ebooks for ipads, android & windows tablets which promote creativity, collaboration & facilitate feedback’. Wow, that’s a mouthful! However I really enjoyed Joe’s session at IATEFL YL SIG pre-conference so I’ll bet this will be fantastic, can’t wait!

9th September-Macmillan webinars three back to school webinars to start term on the right foot.

12th September – ETAS PD Day, a professional development conference packed with loads of great workshops (including yours truly!) and a chance to network with likeminded professionals.

Even more exciting, the new website will go live on this day (so I’d better finish the Teen SIG page!)

17th September– “Teacherholics” a regular Geneva teachermeet, can’t wait to see everyone after the hols!

23rd September – Cambridge English teacher webinars Karen Saxby Engaging parents in their children’s language learning. A subject dear to my heart, Karen also gave a great talk at IATEFL and I’m looking forward to seeing what she has to say on this topic.

Books to read:

Neurotribes: The legacy of Autism and the future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman. Recommended by a friend, this is the BIG SpLD book of the moment.

StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath, I’m a bit of a sucker for (quality) self-improvement books, and this looks pretty good.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, again recommended by a friend, it’s my resolution to try and read more fiction this year so let’s hope this gets read.

What with the above, and starting a new school year, September looks set to a busy month, what about you? What have you got planned?
