native, non-native, bilingual

If you followed some of the online comments of the #IATEFL Conference, you should have heard about Silvana Richardson‘s plenary session

Nik Peachey interviewed her before her plenary; she talked about the three As:

  • Awareness – become aware of what the situation is
  • Advocacy – be more active, more supportive, become more vocal
  • Activism – at teacher associations

 

If you were not at IATEFL or could not watch the plenary online, you can watch the recording now.

Nik Peachey also interviewed Burcu Akyol and Marek Kiczkowiak, who talked about some the issues surrounding non-native teachers in ELT and the development of the https://teflequityadvocates.com website.
