It seems like teachers in Korea are always talking about teaching. Unfortunately they are not always talking about teaching in productive and constructive ways. The facilitators hope that this SIG (Special Interest Group) will begin to change this trend by creating a space where “teachers can begin talking constructively about teaching.” We think that this is a worthwhile goal in and of itself, but we also think that doing so will benefit the teachers, their students and the field in general.
Our goal is to create a KOTESOL group that encourages teachers to actively reflect on their own teaching and teaching contexts. We currently have monthly meetings in Daegu, Gwangju, and Seoul. Attendees at these meetings gather ideas, make plans and hold one another accountable as we learn to be reflective teachers. We also hold annual events where we engage in, share ideas about, and provide examples of reflective practice.
