In November and December, #IPSENchat discusses celebrations, festivals and other important times of the year that our students may celebrate: #NotJustChristmas. We welcome your experiences, resources and suggestions of how we acknowledge this aspect of diversity in our classes. Join in the conversation on twitter @IPSENSIG and facebook IATEFL IP&SENSIG.
On Sunday, January 12th at 10.00 (Polish time), IP&SENSIG is teaming up with TESOL Spain to bring you a free webinar. Agnieszka Dzięcioł-Pędich will be talking about ‘Teaching ADHD students – tips for teachers’. More information and the link to join us for this event will be coming soon.
IP&SENSIG is strengthening connections with other groups around the world. The TESOL Interest Section ‘Supporting Students with Disabilities’ has shared a call for book chapters for a volume they are compiling. They are looking to collect case studies on inclusive practice for specific learning difficulties in postsecondary English language learning. If you would like to contribute, please visit our website for more information.
Our joint PCE (April 17th 2020) with TEASIG is now open for booking. Our invited speakers Richard Spiby (British Council) and Judit Kormos (Lancaster University) will be joined by 5 others, all talking about inclusive and accessible classroom and formal assessment. The day will end with an opportunity to hear from exam boards about how they are making their assessments more accessible. You can find out more and sign up here.
