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.

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?
