On November 20, 2020 we gathered on twitter to discuss English Language Teaching resources with Diane Ramanathan. Diane is the Tutela outreach coordinator as well as a @LINCHomeStudy instructor and TESL professor at @AlgonquinCollege. In her free time she can be seen in Ottawa paddling up the Rideau with a merry band of friends. You can connect with Diane via Twitter (@ram_diane).
These questions guided our 1-hour long chat:
1- What is your favourite source for online learning materials?
2- What is your go to place to source for workplace materials?
3- How would you rate your knowledge of copyright?
4- What materials are you using to teach about COVID?
5- What types of resources do you have difficulty finding?
#teslONchat’s Evening Highlights
The major highlights of the chat were the many resources shared by both Diane and by participants.
