Dear Colleagues, we are working on a large-scale study that examines language teachers' use of MULTIMEDIA. We believe this is a very important area of research because while we have perspectives and studies from researchers on this topic, there is almost nothing on what actually happens in teachers' day-to-day practices. We would like to begin bridging this gap by gathering insights from teachers across a variety of geographic locations. If you would like to share your thoughts with us, please see our research study invitation here: https://tinyurl.com/y55sfq8h Thank you! Tetyana Sydorenko ([email protected]) and Maribel Montero Perez ([email protected])

I am reaching out to you in desparation. We have 1 student who is becoming certified in teaching k-12th Chinese who needs a field placement this fall for pre-student teaching. For this semester, my student will be required to spend half a day in the clasroom observing, co-teaching and eventually taking over/teaching 1 class. This student is a Chinese Native speaker with a lot of teaching experience. She is a fantastic student who writes fantastic lesson plans! Without this experience, she will not be able to move on to student teaching this semester. I am looking for a cooperating teacher in the U.S who is certified to teach Chinese and is teaching remotely. Help?! Please message me at [email protected]

Dear language teacher educators, As part of the Erasmus+ project proPIC, which is currently led by the University of Education Karlsruhe, I am investigating the use of digital teaching formats in the context of the currently changing teaching situation due to the effects of the corona pandemic on English language teacher education. My aim is to find out how teacher educators and universities deal with digitalization during this pandemic. To collect data, I developed a short questionnaire which takes about 13 minutes to complete. I would be very happy if you would be willing to take part in it and share it with other colleagues. Your feedback is very important! You can find my survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.de/r/proPIC Sincerely, Birnur Avsar
