Hi everyone,
Hope you enjoyed the Virtual Round Table this past weekend. Heike has posted links to all the recordings at the program page, here, so you can't complain that you missed it :-)

This is to let you know what's coming up with TALIN this week and into the next.
TODAY, in just a couple of hours, Mon 11 May at 1300 UTC - TALIN hosts Karen Schwarze on Teaching Natural Language Processing in English Classes. There is an event set for this one at  and posts of that have been shared in our Facebook groups. In a nutshell Karen is exploring the interface between teaching English and NLP (natural language processing) through coding. Should be interesting, and more details including the time of the event where you are, can be found here: 
On Fri 15 May, again at 1300 UTC, TALIN hosts Nik Peachey - So what next with teaching in lockdown?
Nik is an excellent, but very busy presenter , so I've asked him to relax for this one and engage us in a discussion which he has themed, What's next with teaching in lockdown? You can find more details about his presentation here: 
On Sun 17 May at 11:30 UTC to accommodate Susan Marandi in Iran (but extending to 13:00, so pop in when you can) Webheads hold their 8th Regular Weekly Revival Meeting. This event is "designed" to be spontaneous and informal, though anyone who wishes can propose a topic.  This hangout repeats each Sunday, and details of the one coming up are here:

And then the week after that on Wed May 20 at 1400 UTC - Dilip Barad will discuss with us challenges and successes in Conducting Remote Hands-on Workshop with learners in India. More information can be found here

After that we have no events planned but I have it on good authority that Graham Stanley and Maggie Sokolik are considering writing themselves in. You can write yourself in as well. We like discussions, so whether you want to present information of use to us or simply engage us in dialog, you can, and here's how:
