REPOST Episode 12: IATEFL 2019 Special
*We're reposting this episode from last year because it has disappeared from our feed - enjoy!* This 12th episode brings Christian together with Tania Iveson and James Taylor, forming the new improved version of the Developod team! They introduce a thought-provoking PCE (pre-conference event), from IATEFL April 2019, which was co-hosted by the TD (Teacher Development) and GI (Global Issues) SIGs (Special Interest Groups).

Finally, the Developod team mention how they were inspired by other talks at IATEFL and signpost us towards future episodes.
