Podcast #14 – The New Semester, Website Updates and a New Discussion Activity

August 26th, 2007 by Dave · No Comments


This week, I begin by talking about some of my plans for the upcoming semester. While doing so, I refer to this earlier podcast about planning a project based course.

I also talk about the new features on the website, including the blog, the collection of article excerpts and the page of China links.

I mention the 4 email lists that I currently subscribe to. The two that I’ve subscribed to for the longest are KOTESOL’s global issues group and IATEFL’s global issues group. Another list that I recently found is World 727 (which I wrote about here). To join, simply send an email to Professor Merry Merryfield at She also oversees, a wonderful website with tons and tons of global education resources, organized both by region and by issue. The newest list I’ve joined is GlobalEdNews from the Peace Corps.

I then talk a bit about the activity I made recently based on 21 Lies I Will Tell My Children.

Please post in the comments or email meif you have any questions or want to share some ideas of your own.
