#ELTchat Summaries

Gold Medal Badge

On this page you will find a link to sixteen summaries that I contributed for the weekly Twitter chat forum, #ELTchat (2010-2019).  The chat used to take place every Wednesday at 7pm GMT (UK time), although it alternated over the years, and lasted around one hour. For a full list of searchable summaries from the beginning please click here.  Note: The links might not work as the site is under development or suspended.

The moderators have been many. They were, at the time of the forum taking a long sabbatical, the following four people:  Marisa Constantinides (@Marisa_C), Sue Annan (@sueannan), Fiona Price (@Fionaljp) and Angelos Bollas (@Angelos_Bollas).  There is a Facebook Group here, which is one of the places to go to find out about a possible return, along with with Twitter.

@VickySaumell is carrying out some research into the perceptions of teachers who use #ELTchat regarding its use in the continuous professional development of teachers of English. I completed her survey in 2020 and was interviewed about it in June 2021.  She features in one of the summaries below:
