    Find out more about how feedback can affect your EFL classroom.

    STEP 1: Let us know you’re going to participate in this think tank. Say hi to everyone and let us know your expectations of this article just by reading the abstract that was extracted from the article cited below.


    One of the most important things to a positive career in education is professional development—essential to maintaining a high standard of teaching at all times. If you’re lucky, you might live somewhere with regular public workshops or work somewhere that provides in-house training. However, for many teachers, access to such programmes can be limited and registration costs can be prohibitive. That’s why I am writing about a cost-free way to stay at the top of your game.
