The British Council and IATEFL are pleased to launch a new handbook for teachers' associations, called Running an Association for Language Teachers.
It provides advice and ideas for how associations can run themselves successfully and provide good services to their members.
Lifelong learning and continuous professional development in my opinion are much the same thing.
I doubt if many people would say that learning throughout one’s life is not a good aim to have.
This handbook has one simple purpose: to provide some practical suggestions for language teachers.
It may be that you are thinking about setting up an association or that you have already started an association and would like more ideas on certain aspects.
