February is a busy time for us here at The Consultants-E. This weekend Nicky is giving the closing plenary at the International House Barcelona ELT conference 5-6 February (this weekend). You can find lots more information about attending the conference, the session timetable, and plenty more at http://www.ihes.com/bcn/tt/conference.html Nicky’s session, Future Perfect, will be at 17:40—18:30 in the Main Hall. In this plenary she will look at futuristic technologies and examine what they might mean for language teachers both now and in the future.


On 10th February 16:00 GMT, Nicky and Gavin will be delivering a webinar entitled Going Mobile: Teaching and learning with mobile devicesDelta Publishing.


“During this webinar we will look at a number of mobile-based activities for general English, and consider how and why using devices might support our students’ language learning. We will examine the choices and challenges involved in using mobile devices with learners. The example activities we share in this webinar are relevant to general English, but we will invite you to consider how mobile devices might best be used in a Business English teaching context.”


This webinar is free and open to all and you can find more information and register at http://www.deltapublishing.co.uk/uncategorized/business-english-professional-development-webinars-2016


Both Nicky and Gavin will then head to Slovakia to do some consultancy research work for the British Council before Nicky then heads off to do a one-day workshop with ELTABB in Berlin 20 February. We will post more information on this nearer the time.
