EPIK March 2010 Additional Orientation Guide

March 11, 2010

EPIK are holding an orientation conference in March for their new EPIK teachers starting in 2010.   If you are attending this event, EPIK has just posted on their website a useful guide detailing further information on this event.  This can be downloaded from their website.

Date : March 25 (Thu) — March 30 (Tue)

Venue : National Institute for International Education (NIIED), Seoul

Although this will only affect a small percentage of our readers, it is interesting to see what content new teachers will be learning – especially as, for many of them, this will be their last chance to find their feet before they are cast out into the wild as an English teacher in Korea.

Here is the schedule from EPIK’s upcoming orientation:

EPIK Orientation Schedule 2010

It’s good to see there is an opportunity to learn some basic Korean, however the obvious feature of the programme is that only 40% will be focusing on Korean teaching methodologies and practices.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the structure and content of this programme.

These events are a great opportunity for new recruits to pick up vital tips and, of course, meet new friends.  I only wish that there were more training opportunities available for teachers who are already working in Korea.
