Q&A
What do I get from a workshop?
Useful knowledge that you can apply to your classes, the English language practice, meeting your colleagues — and a certificate.
Which workshop to choose?
We recommend starting with compulsory workshops and workshops listed in your auto-assessment. When you complete them, you may choose any other workshop you like.
Can I attend a workshop twice?
Yes, you can. Every time we have a new group of attendees with new cases. In June 2020, we updated workshops, so if you attended them before, we recommend signing up for them again.
How do I find out which workshops I have already attended?
Please contact Teachers Care.
The date and time of a workshop don't suit me, what should I do?
Please check the two-week's schedule on the website to find a suitable workshop.
How long do the workshops last?
Pre-workshop lecture is 15–40 minutes long, workshops last for 50–55 minutes. Plan 2 hours on average in total — to listen to a pre-workshop lecture, take a test, attend a workshop itself, and complete the final assignment.
Do I have to watch the pre-workshop lecture & take a test?
Yes, the expert will refer to it. Although your test score doesn't affect anything.
Where are the workshops conducted?
Via Zoom. After signing up, you will get a link to a group chat on Skype within 2 hours. If you don't get the link, please contact the expert of the workshop on Skype — find their Skype ID on the website. You will get a link to a Zoom conference in the group chat 30–40 minutes before the start.
What happens during the workshops?
First, attendees revise a lecture, then examine cases in mini-groups and discuss them all together.
I didn't get a link to a workshop, what should I do?
Please write to the expert of the workshop on Skype — find their Skype ID on the website.
Can I watch a workshop on demand?
No, you can't. Workshops are not recorded and you can only attend them in-person.
How can I give feedback on a workshop?
After the workshop, you'll get a feedback form. Please provide your feedback, and we will take it into account.
How do I complete a workshop and get a certificate?
Listen to the pre-workshop lecture, take the test, attend the workshop itself, and complete the final assignment. This will mean that you completed a workshop. You will get a certificate soon after.
I didn't get a certificate, what should I do?
After you complete the final assignment, we will send a certificate via ttc-bot in Slack within 14 working days. If you don't get the certificate, please contact Teachers Care.
