ETAS Online Teacher Talking Time

Believe it or not – we’ve set up a place where TTT (teacher talking time) is encouraged and appreciated!

Please join us for our monthly ETAS online TTT sessions launched online in April 2020 during lockdown.  Our online TTT sessions are where teachers can meet to talk, share and enjoy each other’s company.We look forward to welcoming teachers throughout Switzerland so, together, we can create a unique chance to connect with others from different regions of the country.


Thursday evening: 15 April 8:00-9:30 pm with guest Sylvia Götze Wake, ETAS presenter and member. 

Sylvia Goetze is passionate about getting teachers to share and discuss world issues with their students and between themselves.Join Sylvia and host, Duria Paoletti to learn ways to integrate environmental topics into the classroom as we approach Earth Day.

How have your lessons changed to adapt to the online experience?

We'll take time to look back at how we have grown and developed our online teaching skills, share experiences and ask questions you may be dying to ask other teachers. Are we all doing the same thing?  Or does it depend on the students and subject? Have the chance to share your crucial learning points gained this past year and learn from others, too.   Those teachers who still may be new to teaching a group or private students online are welcome to join, too.
