I am currently working at a university in Seoul where I usually divide my time between English-focused classes (Discussion and Professional Communications) for graduate students in international studies and seminars in simultaneous interpretation for future interpreters. Sometimes I teach classes in which I have limited or no expertise like global politics or business communication. Teacher training and development is sort of a hobby at the moment. I present quite a lot around Korea and am generally pretty available to present with some advanced notice and ego stroking.
In this blog I am hoping to share and develop my thoughts about ELT and teacher development. And yes, some occasional rants.
I am @michaelegriffin on twitter and my profile there once said I am an:
EFL teacher,teacher-educator,interpreter coach, writer,connector,talker,listener,nudger,editor,why guy, workshopper,feedbacker, #KELTchat -ter.
It used to say “missionary of reflective practice” but I’m becoming less and less comfortable with that description.
