Re-Envisioning EFL Education in Asia
Edited by Theron Muller, John Adamson, Steven Herder, and Philip Shigeo Brown
This third book by our editorial team moves the conversation from innovating in 2012 and exploring in 2014 to re-envisioning EFL teaching and learning through chapters that address contemporary 21st century issues. Here Asia comes into its own as a vibrant center of language teaching pedagogy and research. Further, how borders are envisioned and drawn is critiqued through chapters that, for example, explore multiethnic China and the Asian diaspora’s experiences when studying outside Asia. Its chapters speak to teachers and researchers interested in how to re-envision language teaching in their own contexts.
101 EFL Activities for Teaching University Students is filled with a variety of language learning activities that can be used throughout the semester. While designed with university teachers in mind, teachers of other subjects (and levels) will also find these activities useful in their classrooms. The activities in this book relate to three major themes: the context of the university environment (students learn by talking about their lives as university students), group dynamics – the stages of a group (the stages all students go through during a semester), and active learning (learning through actively using the course material, instead of listening to a professor deliver a lecture).
Small Changes in Teaching Big Results in Learning is a unique resource book aimed at both novice and experienced teachers of English as another language. It can be used in formal/informal teacher education groups or by individual teachers.
As you master the activities and types of feedback introduced in this book, you will be able to move from teaching as a ritual to teaching as discovery. You will decrease the time you spend making lesson plans, quizzes and tests, looking for the ideal syllabus, and preparing worksheets and handouts and, as a result, you will have more time to analyze transcriptions and video clips of what you and your students are doing.

iTDi TESOL Certificate Course
Special Live Tutorial Events
What's so special about an iTDi TESOL Certificate?
Ever wonder why teachers rave about the iTDi TESOL Certificate course? Here’s your chance to find out why teachers choose iTDi.
First, try a free self-paced lesson written by our Academic Director, Scott Thornbury. Then, join TESOL Certificate Course Director, Phil Brown, and iTDi Founder and Director, Steven Herder for a special live tutorial to experience a unique course that has earned five-star endorsements from every teacher who has taken it.
The next Live Tutorial is based on a TESOL Certificate course lesson about presenting vocabulary. Register/Sign up below to access the lesson and tutorial for free.
Learning by doing
We offer Special Live Tutorials for teachers who want to go deeper into how to apply specific principles and skills to your own teaching.
Just like our tutorials on the iTDi TESOL Certificate courses, we workshop these with a more interactive and hands-on learning-centred approach than a typical webinar or lecture.
With all our LIVE events and courses, participants overwhelmingly come out feeling energized and eager to put things practice immediately with their own students, happy to get to know other teachers, deepen their professional network, and confident about growing within the iTDi Community and beyond!
You’ll complete a self-paced online lesson from our TESOL Certificate Course. Then, you’ll join your fellow teachers and tutors in an interactive session.
Like our regular course participants, you’ll have opportunities to actively participate in a safe and supportive environment with experienced mentors and tutors.
Learning how to present vocabulary effectively is, of course, just one part of a teacher’s professional development journey. Whether you’re a newbie or have been teaching for years, at iTDi we provide opportunities for you to thrive wherever your career takes you. And in order for teachers to really thrive – just like our students – we need a supportive community where we can make mistakes, share successes, learn and grow with new opportunities!
