Teach in Thailand: Informational Meeting About the Summer 2018 Practicum


Presenters: Betsy Gilliland, Associate Professor, and

SLS Graduate Students, UH-Mānoa

Have you wanted to get more experience teaching English for academic purposes for university students? Are you curious about what it’s like to teach students with whom you don’t share an L1? Do you want to try doing action research in your own classroom? If you join us for the summer 2018 Thai practicum, you can do all this and more! This brown bag session will explain what the practicum is and what opportunities you can have if you join us. Dr. Gilliland will provide an overview of the graduate class that she will teach and how the program will be structured. Then several current and former SLS graduate students will tell stories and share pictures from their experiences.


Note: If you are interested in participating in the 2018 practicum but can’t make it to this session, please email Dr. Gilliland to let her know.
