TTT Meaningful Weekend

an online conference
for ELT practitioners

TTT Meaningful Weekend

An online 2-day conference for English teachers to share with the ELT world what you really do in your classrooms behind the closed doors. We believe that teachers should share even ‘the little things’ they do and learn from each other's practice.

The unusual thing about this event is that we will not announce the speakers, only the talks. We want you to choose the talks you need, not the person you like. That’s why we’re calling it a Meaningful Weekend. However, we will post all the information about the speakers after the conference.

The conference is organised by Teachers Teach Teachers, a self-study CPD project for English teachers.

What’s the programme?

Dates: February, 6-7 2021
Time:
9.30 am - 4 pm (+3 GMT)

On the programme page we will publish abstracts and short information about the speakers. No names will be published! We want you to to focus on the topic, not the speaker.

There will be a TTT Cafeteria/Bar operating for you all day, where you'll be able to mingle and network in between the talks (or instead of, who knows?). We want you to feel comfortable and get to know as many colleagues as possible! have your coffee meaningfully with us.

      Who we are

      Teachers Teach Teachers

      is a co-learning project for EFL teachers. Since 2019, we’ve been growing, building up a community of like-minded professionals who are willing to share and grow together. 

      The project has marked its first year, and in the middle of the second one we’re organizing this unusual ELT event. 

      Save the date in your calendar – 6 and 7 of February 2020.

      Why we are doing this

      We believe in inspiring and empowering ELT practitioners to share their classroom experience with colleagues and we’d like to provide them with an opportunity to share.
      With the fantastic teachers as participants of the project, we have built a strong methodological base, and we have already shared with the ELT world our expertise. In times of pandemic our free online course on how to teach online was taken by 2000+ teachers from all over the world. We can’t allow everyone to join our project yet (limited capacity), but we can organise a bigger event once in a while to share most important stuff.
      We would like ELT teachers to be provided with a safe and enriching space for professional growth.
