Bolsas IATEFL – últimos dias!

Amanhã, dia 21 de julho, é o último dia para concorrer a bolsas para ir ao congresso do IATEFL na Escócia em abril do ano que vem.

Há bolsas para todo mundo: membros e não membros do IATEFL, professores experientes ou novatos, pessoas que já foram ao congresso e quem é a primeira vez, quem quer fazer uma comunicação e quem só quer ir assistir ao evento… Veja a lista de bolsas neste link:

http://www.iatefl.org/scholarships/current-list-of-scholarships

Fique atento, pois há bolsas super generosas, que cobrem tudo que você possa imaginar, e há bolsas que exigem que você arque com alguns custos (ainda assim, é uma mão na roda, né!).

Após escolher qual bolsa você quer tentar, leia as instruções e clique no botão APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP no fim desta página: http://www.iatefl.org/scholarships/scholarships-overview-and-faqs  

Atenção! Se a bolsa requerer apresentação de trabalho, você também terá de submeter uma proposta ao congresso e o prazo é também amanhã.

Mas tente! Vários BrELTers já foram ao IATEFL com essas bolsas, provando que é possível, sim, quando se tenta. Sem tentar é que é impossível.

#RovingBrELT at the 15th #BTIC

Wow! That’s the only word we can utter after seeing how *massive* #rovingBrELT was during the 15th Braz-TESOL International Conference, a testament to how the conference was fascinating and full of learning opportunities.  If you would like to go over the posts but couldn’t keep up with the frantic pace, here are the links, separated by event that prompted the buzz. Join the discussion!

P.S.: Can’t find your roving post here? Please send us the link so we can add it to the list.

BrELT/TD-SIG Panel: our 1st face-to-face success!

13724078_1650132938641313_3860304272368623328_o

Some of the BrELTers who attended the BrELT/TD SIG panel

July 15, 2016 will go down in BrELT history as the first face-to-face event the community has ever had. With the support of Braz-TESOL and in partnership with the Braz-TESOL Teacher Development Special Interest Group (BT TD-SIG), BrELTers had an hour and a half to debate the very necessary issue of teacher development, the core of what BrELT is all about.

After the panel moderator Edmilson Chagas told us more about the Braz-TESOL Teacher Development SIG and laid down the plans for the panel, the BrELT team took the floor to describe the community’s challenges and achievements (you can check out the slides here). Ricardo Nostradamus Barros pointed out how fast the community has been growing and even risked a prediction: by early 2017, we will have reached 10,000 members, the double of what we had 2 years earlier.

brelters

BrELT’s milestones

Meanwhile, as the panel was being held, about 50 people joined BrELT and the community passed the mark of 8800 members.Spooky!

The sheer number of ELT professionals in BrELT is indicative of its richness of experiences. In fact, a recent survey has shown that the bulk of BrELTers have been around in the ELT world for 5 to 15 years and work in various contexts. Still, our biggest challenge has been reaching out to regular school teachers and to teachers based beyond the Southeast/South. (So if you are reading this from the North, Northeast or Midwest, or if you work in regular schools and feel BrELT can contribute, please spread the word among your colleagues!)

Then T. Veigga and Natália Guerreiro talked about all of BrELT’s projects, namely: the community itself, the fortnightly BrELT Chats, this blog, webinars, interviews, the monthly posts about ELT events, #rovingBrELT, the language development SIG, and our new Instagram account. Phew! That’s quite a list, when we put it like that, isn’t it? Perspectives for the future of BrELT were also listed: keeping our hits, but investing in new projects. The problem? As moderators are volunteers, they have other demands on their time. The solution is simple, however:  the help of BrELTers themselves.

13708350_1649890801998860_1980719367079674601_o

Our moderator and panelists: Edmilson Chagas, Bruna Caltabiano, Andreia Fernandes, and Roseli Serra

After that, our speakers talked about their different teacher development realities: Andreia Fernandes in public schools in Rio de Janeiro, Roseli Serra in private bilingual schools in the Northeast of Brazil, and Bruna Caltabiano in a small language institute in São Paulo. Interestingly enough, all three of them described some degree of resistance from teachers. Bruna, who has a degree in psychology, ventured an explanation: fear. Although most teachers will credit lack of money and time to develop, and these are both understandably contributing factors, in fact many teachers seem to fear making mistakes when practicing the language in front of others, being exposed or ridiculed, and also getting out of their comfort zone. BrELTers in the audience and in the community seemed to agree, and many reflected back to when they themselves were afraid for various reasons. The panelists also reported many achievements, showing how teachers can come around eventually, especially when they feel the teacher developer is trustworthy and really there to help.

A debate ensued and questions from the audience made it clear that this topic is far from being all talked out. Teacher development is very complex, since it drags along issues of working conditions, pay, qualifications, and even the status of our profession in society. Worry not, though, for we have BrELT to keep the conversation going.

**************

The BrELT Team would like to seize this opportunity to thank again, firstly, the members who participated, both face-to-face and online, showing the best of the community has to offer: its power to congregate fascinating people and generate reflection on our practices. We would also like to thank our inspiring panelists, who were able to talk about such a delicate issue with both assertiveness and tact. We always knew you were brilliant, and you still managed to wow us! Edmilson Chagas also set an example to be followed in the way he monitored the time and moderated the debate. Suave has got to be his middle name! Last but not least, we must thank Braz-TESOL and its TD-SIG for their support and partnership, especially Valeria França, Higor Cavalcante, and Claudia Cavalcante. Valeria was in fact one of BrELT’s first moderators and spoke the sweetest words about our community at the end of the panel.

What’s #rovingBrELT after all?

post andrew

The 15th Braz-TESOL International Conference is about to start and with it we expect a lot of #rovingBrELT.

What exactly is #rovingBrELT, however? Read on for the #rovingBrELT FAQ.

1. What is #rovingBrELT?

#RovingBrELT is the hashtag used by BrELT’s roving reporters to identify their posts mostly in our Facebook community, but also on Twitter or Instagram. BrELT roving reporting can be done from any conference or event that is relevant for English language teachers, usually live but also soon after the event.

sabrina

2. What are the aims of #rovingBrELT?

Basically, roving BrELT uses the social media for our continuing professional development. Roving reporting…

  • brings the event closer for those who couldn’t attend;
  • makes it possible for those who are in the conference to know what is going on in the other rooms, when there are concurrent talks;
  • publicizes the event, so people are interested in going in its following editions;
  • helps amplify the reach of speakers’ message and give them a gauge of the impact of (sections of) their talk;
  • provides a forum for discussion, as BrELTers – including the presenters themselves — can comment on the post;
  • gives a feel of what topics are trending in our field.

 

roving_bc

3. What kind of posts can roving BrELTers publish?

BrELTers can publish anything and everything that they consider helpful to a teacher’s continuing professional development during an ELT event. It usually translates into a photo of a slide, a quote, and/or a paraphrase of what has been said in a talk or workshop. You could also post a short video if you have the presenter’s authorization to do so, or even interview the speaker.

Remember: a roving BrELT post always brings the hashtag #rovingBrELT, the hashtag of the event (e.g.: #btic for the Braz-TESOL international event), and the name of the speaker. Ideally it also contains the title or topic of the talk, as that helps contextualize the post.

roving_larissa2

4. Who can be a BrELT roving reporter?

Any BrELT member (a person who is part of the facebook.com/groups/brelt group) at any ELT or applied linguistics talk, including in online events.

pat iatefl

5. How did this roving reporting idea start?

Priscila Mateini had seen roving reporting being done at the IATEFL conference in the UK and brought the idea to BrELT during the IATEFL in 2015. Since then, BrELTers have reported from several conferences.

 

ila2

And many other events…

6. Can I do roving reporting after the event?

Sure! If your cell phone died, you didn’t have internet connection, or if you want to write a more thought-out post, you can always do it after the event. Just don’t postpone it much, so you don’t forget what you meant to say. Also, you are more than welcome to publish a longer piece here on our blog, breltchat.wordpress.com. Talk to BrELT moderators if you are interested.

7. Any tips or words of caution for roving BrELTers?

  • Make sure you’re posting at a public forum, ideally our community. Posts on your own Facebook timeline will be limited in reach to your friend list and don’t count as roving BrELT.
  • Careful not to spam the community. You can post as often as you see fit, but please make sure your posts are relevant to teachers’ CPD.
  • It’s virtually impossible to ask each and every speaker for authorization to do roving BrELT beforehand. However, if you notice the speaker is uncomfortable with your taking photos or using your cell phone during the talk, don’t insist. If possible, talk to the speaker afterwards and explain what you were doing and how that could help amplify the reach of their message.
  • Video can be more invasive. Only film (parts of) the talk if you know the speaker and clear with him or her first. Needless to say, don’t be pushy.
  • Always use the #rovingBrELT and the event tags, so the post can be easily retrieved. Also credit the speaker, of course, and preferably add the title of the talk or a little explanation about the topic to contextualize.

8. How can I follow the roving reporting?

The posts are available mainly in our community. You can follow as they come or search for #rovingBrELT in the community.

BrELT would like to thank all its roving reporters.

You’re living proof that sharing is caring!

BrELT/TD SIG Panel in the Braz-TESOL Conference

If you are coming to the 15th Braz-TESOL Conference in Brasilia next week, don’t forget there is going to be a BrELT/BT TD-SIG Panel about Teacher Development, named “Teacher Development in Brazil: Challenges & Achievements“, on Friday, July 15, from 3.50 to 5.20 pm, in Room #13.

We will dedicate those 90 minutes to discussing the initiatives and difficulties of teacher development in Brazil in different contexts. First, the BrELT Team will talk about our community, of course, and its efforts to bring free Continuing Professional Development (CPD) closer to English Language Teachers in Brazil. Then, Andreia Fernandes, from Rio de Janeiro, will dispel myths (or maybe confirm some suspicions? We shall see!) about teacher development in state/public schools. She will be followed by the Pernambucana Roseli Serra, who will introduce us to the booming market of bilingual schooBRELT_TD SIG PANEL names-1.pngls and the teacher development issues it raises. Last but not least, the Paulista Bruna Caltabiano, who is both a teacher and a manager/owner, will focus on the reality of CPD in private language institutes. Finally, there will be plenty of time for questions and debate, effectively turning the panel into our first face-to-face BrELT Chat ever. Unmissable! 

The panel will be moderated by Edmilson Chagas, treasurer of the Braz-TESOL Teacher Development SIG, consolidating a cherished partnership between BrELT and Brazil’s largest ELT association. 

After the panel, don’t leave in a hurry: this is a rare opportunity to take a photo with your fellow BrELTers!

Em breve: BrELT/TD-SIG Panel

Há um ano exatamente, Andreia Fernandes apresentou o BrELT webinar mais visto de todos os tempos, que você pode rever em nosso canal no YouTube. No webinar, Andreia relatou lindamente sua experiência de ensino de inglês em uma escola pública no Rio de Janeiro no turno da noite. Semana que vem ela está de volta à BrELT, desta vez para falar de desenvolvimento profissional na escola pública, no painel BrELT/TD SIG na XV Braz-TESOL International Conference.
andreia

Se você estiver em Brasília para o congresso, participe do nosso primeiro evento presencial nesta sexta-feira (15/07) das 15h50 às 17h20 na sala 13. O painel também conta com a fala de Roseli Serra e Bruna Caltabiano, que nos trarão as realidades de desenvolvimento dos professores de inglês em escolas bilíngues e cursos livres de idiomas, respectivamente. Além dessas três feras, você também verá o time de moderadores BrELT — nas pessoas de Thiago Veigga, Ricardo Barros e Natália Guerreiro –, que vai apresentar os desafios e conquistas de continuing professional development (CPD) online através de nossa comunidade. Tudo isso, claro, seguido por um debate, moderado pelo lord Edmilson M Chagas. Imperdível!

Glossário de Desenvolvimento Profissional de Profs de Inglês

Hoje tivemos um bate-papo sobre as etapas de desenvolvimento profissional dos professores de inglês e, como era de se esperar, surgiram nomes de exames, qualificações, associações de professor, etc. Muitos desses nomes são siglas que espantam qualquer um que não esteja familiarizado. O que é CELTA? Qual a diferença entre um TKT e um CPE? Um M.A. é o que exatamente? Aqui um guia rápido dessas siglas com links para você aprender mais sobre elas.

1. Provas de proficiência

CAE e CPE – exames de proficiência em língua inglesa da Cambridge. CAE é nível avançado (C1 na CEFR) e CPE é nível proficiência (C2 na CEFR, o nível mais alto) http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams/advanced/
http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams/proficiency/


IELTS – prova de proficiência em inglês com validade de 2 anos, elaborada pelo British Council, Cambridge e IELTS Australia. https://www.ielts.org/ O seu certificado IELTS lhe confere uma nota, e essa nota é que indica o nível que você tem. Espera-se que uma pessoa de nível avançado (C1 da CEFR) tire mais de 6.5 no IELTS, enquanto uma pessoa de nível pós-avançado/proficiência tiraria acima de 8 (o máximo é 9).

TOEFL, TOEIC – outras provas de proficiência em inglês, elaboradas pela ETS nos EUA, com validade de 2 anos https://www.ets.org/toefl e https://www.ets.org/toeic O seu certificado TOEFL/TOEIC lhe confere uma nota, e essa nota é que indica o nível que você tem. Espera-se que uma pessoa de nível avançado (C1 da CEFR) tire 95 pontos ou mais no TOEFL IBT (a versão online, em que o máximo de pontos é 120).

Por sinal…

CEFR – Common European Framework of Reference, não é prova, mas muitas avaliações fazem referência a ele, que é o quadro comum europeu com os níveis de proficiência http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/cefr/

2. Provas de conhecimento sobre ensino

TKT – provas de conhecimento sobre ensino, com módulos especializados http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/teaching-english/teaching-qualifications/tkt/

3. Qualificações para professores

(Obs.: Claro que no chat também falamos de bacharelados e licenciaturas em Letras e em outras áreas, mas como esses termos são amplamente conhecidos no Brasil e não são siglas, não se julgou necessário explicar.)

CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) – Qualificação inicial da Cambridge para professores com duração de 1 mês intensivo ou 6 meses regulares  http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/teaching-english/teaching-qualifications/celta/ (Apesar de ser uma qualificação *inicial*, muita gente já faz quando tem tempo de estrada e adora.)

ICELT (In-Service Certificate in English Language Teaching) – qualificação da Cambridge intermediária entre CELTA e DELTA, para profs que já estão na sala de aula http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/teaching-english/teaching-qualifications/icelt/

DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) – qualificação da Cambridge para profs experientes, com um módulo que é uma prova, um módulo que é uma monografia e um módulo prático em sala de aula http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/teaching-english/teaching-qualifications/delta/

CertTESOL – qualificação da Trinity equivalente ao CELTA, dificil de ocorrer no Brasil http://www.trinitycollege.com/site/?id=201

DipTESOL – qualificação da Trinity equivalente ao DELTA , inexistente no Brasil
http://www.trinitycollege.com/site/?id=202

M.A. – Master of Arts – os mestrados no exterior na nossa área (seja M.A. in TESOL, M.A. in Applied Linguistics, etc) costumam ter essa sigla. No entanto, se vc for querer usar o título no Brasil, cuidado: nem todos os M.A. valem como mestrado de verdade no Brasil, alguns serão revalidados como especialização.

B.A. – Bachelor of Arts (ex.: B.A. in English) – o equivalente ao nosso nível superior em qualquer faculdade da área de Artes e Humanidades

4. Associações

Braz-TESOL – a maior associação brasileira de profs de inglês, que organiza um congresso internacional a cada 2 anos (este ano vai ter em Brasília agora em julho)
http://www.braztesol.org.br/site/view.asp

Braz-TESOL Chapters – as organizações locais subordinadas ao Braz-TESOL, que promovem eventos na cidade ou estado em que estão baseadas.

AP(L)Is – as associações estaduais de professores de inglês no Brasil. Há uma lista aqui do lado no blog, mas temos como exemplo a APLIERJ, a APIES e a APIRS.

IATEFL – associação internacional de profs de inglês com sede no Reino Unido, que organiza um evento anual, quase sempre no Reino Unido http://www.iatefl.org/

TESOL – associação internacional de profs de inglês com sede nos EUA, que organiza um evento anual, quase sempre nos EUA ou Canadá http://www.tesol.org/

SIG – Special Interest Group. Em associações como o Braz-TESOL e o IATEFL, grupos de interesse em tópicos específicos, que se organizam para debater esse tema e promover eventos sobre ele. Entre nos sites das associações, e você encontrará SIGs em áreas como materials development, pronunciation, bilingualism, assessment, teacher development, etc.

5. Outras siglas relacionadas

PLN – Personal/Professional Learning Network, as pessoas com as quais você se relaciona e com as quais aprende https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_learning_network

CPD – Continuing professional development, tudo que fazemos para nos aperfeiçoarmos como profissionais
