English Language Webinars

Trinity organises events and various webinar series throughout the year. Most Trinity-organised events are free, but may require advance registration.

Am I Good Enough?

What does it mean to be a good teacher? This session looked at both the challenges and advantages of teaching as a non-native speaker of English.



In this webinar, the presenters discussed some of the ideas around what it means to be a ‘good teacher’ through the eyes of someone whose first language is not English. They looked at what it’s like to be a non-native speaker teacher working both at home and abroad and discussed what specific challenges teachers face as well as the distinct skills and experience that both native and non-native teachers bring to the English language classroom. By exploring these, the presenters explored how teachers can appreciate their own individual strengths, reflect on what students actually need in the international world of the 21st century, and better understand how they can meet these needs.
