Learning2gether classroots weekly online professional development -
This session was one of several held this week at Al Ain Men's College (AAMC) as part of an in-house professional development week in April 2013. It was updated on Aug 25, 2013 for the annual MoodleMoot Virtual Conference MMVC13

Description of event:
Learning2gether is a wiki which, since September 2010, has served to organize teachers in meeting online at regular times weekly to conduct free “class-roots” professional development seminars and discuss topics of mutual interest to teachers of ESOL in particular and educators in general. Presenters and participants range from expert to those merely interested in the topics. Participants come from all over the world, but from its inception there has been an effort to involve teaching practitioners in Arab countries through coordination with the TESOL Arabia TAEDTECH-SIG. Sessions are recorded, and a growing archive of recorded resources is accumulating at the associated podcast site. This session will introduce teachers to the endeavor and invite them to become involved.
