A look at how current approaches to promoting PD for EFL instructors in the UAE may not be that effective. The author suggests the use of social networking tools to support sharing, testing, and collaborating amongst instructors as an alternative. This may also help realize a "community of best practice" for UAE based EFL instructors. On a micro level this can be accomplished through reflective practice and Journaling via blogs. On a macro level this might be accomplished through social networking tools such as Ning, Twitter and Facebook. Efforts are under way to join TESOL Arabia SIGs via such tools.
