Learning2gether with Jim Buckingham on the Online PD Tutorials Project

Sunday August 23, 2015

What was it about? 
We had an interesting discussion today with Jim Buckingham and Tony Waterman about Jim's proposed Online PD Tutorials Project and its alignment with ISTE Standards toward having it awarded an ISTE Seal of Alignment. The idea of pursuing this is driven by a desire to have "our work internationally recognized" so that it has greater credibility in the eyes of both TESOL Arabia members AND those of us who will help realize these. By addressing such standards, we should gain some much valued and highly relevant PD. 

He is proposing an online, asynchronous "co-development consultancy" workshop to help realize this.  Details can be found in this Google folder - https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B8r1jrc3n6aifmZ5dF9jQjBTc1JMcXVnbGtSMUhOMTVEMTdKSWp5cnhrdkdLSzRwTXNBN2s&usp=sharing
