New books from Pavilion: Live Online Teaching by Jill Hadfield and Lindsay Clandfield and Learning While Teaching by Daria Vaskova

Live Online Teaching examines best practices for teaching live online, outlines key strategies and provides practical activities to implement these practices and strategies. It aims to help teachers focus on the art of teaching rather than the mechanics of using an online platform, and enjoy doing what they do best, teach! 

The book is ideal for anyone who would like to teach with confidence online, anyone who is looking for new ways to do communicative activities with their classes, and anyone who is just looking to refresh their ideas, especially now as teachers move beyond the emergency confines of teaching online in the pandemic to teaching online as part of everyday life and look to put the joy back into teaching. 


About the authors

Lindsay Clandfield is an award-winning writer, teacher, teacher trainer and international speaker in the field of English language teaching. He has written more than ten coursebooks and is the main author of the new young adult course Studio (Helbling Languages). Lindsay is also the creative force behind various web projects including the popular blog Six Things, the long-running podcast The TEFL Commute, the e-publishing collective The Round and the sci-fi/adventure materials website Extreme Language Teaching.

Jill Hadfield has worked as a teacher and teacher trainer in Britain, France, China, Tibet, Madagascar and New Zealand, run short courses and seminars for teachers in many other parts of the world and worked as a consultant for the UK’s British Council and Department of International Development, writing materials for and reviewing aid projects in Africa. She was until recently Associate Professor in Language Teacher Education at Unitec, New Zealand and has now returned to working freelance.

Learning While Teaching is designed to help language teachers who teach a language different from their first language, and for language teachers who lack confidence in their knowledge of the language they are teaching, who are looking to improve their proficiency and expertise in the language they teach. It offers practical ideas and adaptable activities to help teachers improve their language level autonomously.

Part 1 explores how language proficiency and linguistic knowledge impact how teachers are perceived by their students, employers, and themselves. Part 2 focuses on how teachers can use lesson preparation, delivery, and the teaching community to enhance their language level.
