In this video I talk about the Interactive Language Fair which happened on Day 1 of IATEFL 2016 and was organised by Burcu Akyol and Bethany Cagnol. There were about a dozen poster sessions from speakers from all around the world all in the same room. As the participants you had a chance to interact more closely with the presenters and ask them questions. You could also move in between the poster sessions any time you wanted to, which gave you the chance to get a taste many different presentations in quite a short time. In particular, I focus on one of the sessions which was about a new approach to observations, professional development and teacher assessment.

You might also be interested in this podcast where I talked to Anthony Ash about PD programs, lesson plans and observations, as well as this where with Rob we come up with an observee’s checklist.

Don’t forget that all our podcasts are also available on a number of music services, and the videos are on our YouTube channel. Just click on one of the logos below to be redirected the service. If you enjoyed one of the episodes, we would appreciate if you rated it or left a comment.
