Issue 62 Editorial & Contents

It is often said that there are usually at least two sides to every story. In this issue we have a number of articles which see things from different viewpoints. Both Richard Ostick and Robert Buckmaster have written about presenting. However, one looks at the topic from the point of view of teaching business students how to improve their presentation skills, and the other considers how teachers can use technology to enhance their own presentation skills as they teach their classes, train other teachers or present at conferences. Mario Rinvolucri derives inspiration for classroom activities from the difference between truth and falsehood. He finds that students have a fascination for winkling out the truth from different versions of the same story or choosing between true and false definitions of words.
Alan Maley sees potential for continued development in looking beyond the usual sources of information on teaching and teachers. In a new series, he will recommend works of literature and books outside the ELT field, which offer a different perspective on our profession and which he believes readers will find inspirational. For Sue Leather and Simon Smith, teacher training and trainer training are areas where it is important to uncover different expectations and different viewpoints early on in the process. They suggest a series of questions that can be asked at the planning stage of a training course to avoid later misunderstandings.
Finally, in a world caught up in the cult of the celebrity, Lindsay Clandfield offers a different point of view and considers cutting celebrities out of his coursebooks and his classroom.
