We all have stories about our teacher development. What’s in these stories shapes our teaching and affects those around us. IATEFL TDSIG invite you to attend its inaugural Web Carnival on “Stories of Teacher Development” on Saturday, January 30, 2016. During it, selected speakers from our community will share their stories by focusing on:

  • a turning point that led to a realisation about their teaching
  • a key question that they faced in this realisation
  • how these turned into action


While sessions are short, everyone will have opportunities to interact, share, and reflect on these points. In addition, you can also share your stories through posts on our website or yours. If you’d like to participate in this way first, please submit your story here. We’ll either select to be on the TDSIG website or link to it.
