What are you doing for PD this month

 

Pick one thing a month, or add favourites!

 

MOOCs, webinars, conferences, article discussion groups, Twitter chats…anything related to ELT PD is fine but please:

 

- respect the limitations of our time zones/region

- do not use for self-promotion unless there is clear relevance to this community 

 

NB: This calendar is crowd-sourced by the #AusELT community, and all events either take place online at a realistic time, or within Australia and New Zealand. For a calendar of ELT conferences and events around the world (curated by Tyson Seburn), click here.
