Promoting Your Department and Practice with Twitter

  • Crystal Bock Thiessen

Abstract

Intensive English Programs (IEPs) constantly find themselves in an ongoing battle for their legitimacy and relevancy throughout many university campuses in the United States. The often overlooked professional development demands and multicultural endeavors in which ESL instructors partake, coupled with our current social and political climate, makes it imperative that IEPs and English language instructors take on the promotion of their important work on campus and with our international English language learners themselves. Fortunately, with the prevalence of social media, Twitter in particular, it is easier and more accessible for English language professionals and departments to demonstrate that what they do extends greatly beyond teaching.
