Why build a teacher support website?

This workshop will help to identify the many different contexts in which teacher support websites are being created (in institutions, associations, transnational networks...), to reflect upon their use for language teachers and the ways in which they can be built.

Workshop 1B: English (Catherine Clément)

4.00pm-5.30pm Roundtable. Choosing and producing resources for language teacher support websites.

The aim of this roundtable is to look at the selection of resources available for download on teacher support websites and their design by looking at practical cases. How far should such websites go in providing support to teachers? To what extent should websites produce readymade resources? How can these websites be used to promote the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) and the European Language Portfolio?
