ELT burnout revisited A little more than two years ago, I talked about burnout, particularly the path towards it that I and probably you were on. My ELT:Other ratio stared glaringly in my face, mocking my attempts at having a life outside of language teaching. It’s then that I realised I was definitely on the road to burnout. Now with Shelly Sanchez Terrell’s cycle 4 of the 30 Goals for Educators, and an upcoming Google Hangout I’ll be doing with her about them, it seems like an opportune time to revisit my path and see if things have changed. The gist of the ELT:Other ratio is looking at how you spend your time in language teaching areas vs all of your other interests.

Kühn’s research interests lie in the structure and function of the brain as well as exploring its plasticity. For 8 weeks, the test group played Super Mario 64 for 30 minutes every day.

As well as some interesting vendor offerings in the field. The interest in gamification for learning is larger than it’s ever been and continues to grow (but not as fast as some predicted…more about that later).
