Profile Information

May we ask: Are you a language educator? If so, what language do you teach? If not, what else do you do? And please do not write only 'English', be a little specific. In the past we had spammers and your reply helps us understand whether you are sincere. Thank you so much..

About Me

Hello, I am Beyza Yılmaz. I work as an EFL instructor atOzyegin University School of Language Instruction. I worked as an EFL instructor at Bahcesehir University  for six years and as a materials developer for some language courses previously. I did my master’s degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) at Middle East Technical University and wrote my thesis on Online Communities of Practice. I also have a CELTA certificate from Cambridge University. I have been a member of Webheads in Action for five years.

I am also a teacher trainer. I have co-moderated some Electronic Village Online sessions and did workshops and talks in national and international conferences. I will be working as a teacher trainer at Pilgrims this summer.

I have always  considered learning as a neverending journey and believe that in order to cope with the increasing amount of information and to keep up to date, we need to look for alternative  ways of professional development. Therefore, I look for different options and try to turn the challenges into opportunities both in classroom teaching and professional development. As a result, I believe that utilizing the Internet for both of these purposes is extremely important for life long learning and equipping learners and teachers with the twenty first century skills sets.

 I do consider research very important part of this teacher development process. Therefore, I am interested in many research areas. My research interests cover teacher development,multiliteracies,  use of Web 2.0 tools in language teaching, Online Communities of Practice and discourse analysis.
