The presenters will discuss how to realize an online community for EFL instructors in the UAE and its integration with professional or personal learning networks (PLN). They propose a social network structure that will address the need for ongoing PD in the UAE that is driven bottom up, not top down, according to the perceived interests of practitioners involved in language education and other a of learning in the UAE. The session will suggest means by which practitioners can share knowledge and skills and contribute to each others’ PDs by practicing within a PD network dedicated to the needs of knowledge workers in the UAE as well as connecting with similarly motivated networks and communities worldwide. NB: SMALL stands for Social Media assisted Language Learning.
