An Academic Ghostwriter Comes Clean

An Academic Ghostwriter Comes Clean | English Language Teaching | Scoop.it

When The Chronicle published a confessional essay two years ago by a writer for a student-paper mill who had spent nearly a decade helping college students cheat on their assignments, it provoked anger, astonishment, and weary resignation.

The writer, under the pseudonym Ed Dante, said he had completed scores of papers for students who were too lazy or simply unprepared for their work at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels.

The academic ghostwriter has retired, and in his new memoir, he reveals his true identity: Dave Tomar, 32, a graduate of the bachelor's program in communications at Rutgers University's New Brunswick campus and, now, a freelance writer in Philadelphia.

The IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG in association with MEI (Marketing English in Ireland) and the support of ELT Ireland are happy to announce that Digital ELT Ireland 2015 will take place on 31 October – 1 November 2015 in Dublin. This year’s theme is “Technology & Pedagogy in Practice”.

The aim is to host practical and theoretical presentations which can help to enhance our classroom experiences and aid our understanding of technology in ELT.

You are welcome to send in proposals for a talk or workshop within the topic of the conference, which has the following strands:

- mLearning
- eLearning
- Multimedia
- Online tools & resources
- Learning Management Systems
- The Flipped Classroom
- The use of Augmented Reality in ELT
- Gamification
- The use of corpora and concordances
- Digital Literacies

Talks should be 30 minutes including 5 minutes for questions and answers.

Workshops should be 45 minutes including 5 minutes for questions and answers.

More than one presenter is welcome.

We are looking forward to contributions from all involved in the ELT sector – from Young Learners to Higher Education practitioners, Researchers, Teacher Trainers, Educational Technology leaders and material writers. Proposed sessions can be targeted to beginner, intermediate, or advanced audiences.

Please submit your proposal below.

Why online teaching liberates ESL teachers

Why online teaching liberates ESL teachers | English Language Teaching | Scoop.it

Inspired by her talk at Innovate ELT, guest blogger Jaime Miller of English Success Academy looks at the reasons and pluses for getting into teaching online.


During one of the mini-plenaries at Innovate ELT 2015, in Barcelona, Spain, Duncan Foord referenced a fear in the industry: that EdTech will render teachers obsolete.


Nothing could be further from the truth, and I say that with five years of experience teaching ESL online, and three years of sourcing 100% of my income from private Skype exams lessons for TOEFL iBT (without touching services like iTalki, WizIQ, or CourseEra). As our industry moves forward, teaching will inevitably change – but teachers will remain as essential as they always have been.


At Innovate ELT, I opened a discussion of the future of teaching ESL online with an observation about many English teachers and expats around the world:
