O Webinar, Webinar, wherefore art thou Webinar?

Worry not because they’re all right here in this post! Here’s a list of free online events for ELT educators between April and May 2015. April is going to be an exciting month with the IATEFL annual conference livecast sessions from Manchester. However, I’m going to be teaching, training and travelling through the month… I do hope I get time to attend some of these events. An asterisk indicates that the event requires prior registration.

If you know of an online event that’s relevant to ELT educators that’s missing from this list, please let me know by leaving a comment.
