December 2008 - Issue No. #70

Here, finally, is our GILE newsletter for winter 2008. Apologies for the delay getting this out! Due to a heavy workload (organizing the 6th Asian Youth Forum), I had to skip our fall issue. Rest assured that everyone will get an extra issue to make up for this. Our main articles here deal with (1) a college EFL course designed on global education principles, (2) an international photo album exchange, and (3) on-line videos for teaching social issues. We also feature a list of global issue calendars, teachable moments for 2009, a report on the fall JALT 2008 conference plus lots of global education news, events and information.

ANNOUNCEMENT: After 19 years as a paper newsletter, we plan to offer the option of electronic subscriptions by e-mail. See page 2 for details. Let us know your preference!
