Oxford recognises that it is not always possible to attend a workshop. Hence, a webinar programme has been introduced as part of the Professional Support Programme. Run from an internet browser, webinars enable participants to log in and participate from any location with an internet connection. There is no need to travel to attend. Our webinar program is continually expanding.

What is a Webinar?

If you are from a country school, interstate or can’t make it to a workshop, webinars let you participate. A webinar is a web-delivered seminar. It is conducted over the Internet with a presenter leading the workshop.

Participants can:

• hear the presenter
• ‘chat’ with the moderator, presenter and other participants
• receive handouts and materials
• participate from staffroom, home or their office
• involve their whole faculty
• watch the event again later

No special software is required to participate in a webinar. All you need is Internet access and a web browser on your computer. We will send the link once you have registered for the webinar in question.

Oxford University Press worldwide will be organising a series of webinars in the upcoming months. On December 12th and 14th, Robin Walker (OUP author and teacher trainer) will offer a webinar on the role that English plays today as a tool for international communication, or lingua franca. Robin will discuss what this means for teachers and the impact of pronunciation on intelligibility. Teachers who register for the webinar will have the chance to participate and to contrast their ideas with Robin.

In 2012 Oxford will be launching webinars for primary school teachers. What topics are you interested in? Let us know at: primarymagazine@oup.es

If you like more information on this session or how to register go to the Upcoming Events section on the OUP Global webpage. OUP Spain will also be organizing webinars led by authors and teacher trainers. We’ll keep you posted!
