Aslı Saglam's Blog about CPD in ELT

About Me


Hello, welcome to my world! Nice to meet you 🙂

I would like to share some more information about myself. I am Aslı Saglam. I am an English language teacher and I have been teaching English for more than 12 years now. I worked at preparatory schools of some major Turkish universities as English language instructor. Teaching has taught me a lot about myself, other people and the world. I love teaching a lot (like the way Gollum loves the ring ) and I want to share my reflections about teaching in this blog.

Welcome to my world!

Who am I?

My name is Aslı and I am a wife, mother, teacher, sister, daughter, friend, world citizen and a life-long learner (in no specific order). I have M.A and B.A in English Language Teaching from Middle East Technical University and right now I am pursuing my Ph.D. I have been teaching English as a foreign language in Turkey for more than 13 years now. I worked at major Turkish Universities including Bilkent, Bilgi, and Bahcesehir University. Right now, I am working at Ozyegin University, Istanbul Turkey. The best part of my job is that I am working with excellent colleagues and friends.

I am particularly interested in curriulumand instructional design, testing and ICT. I am quite new to blogging. Previously I took an ICT course from The Consultants-E and right now I am following The Teacher Challange in Blogging (and I am loving it!!). Thanks to blogging and other bloggers, I can get to know great many possibilities of making teaching & learning much more efficient and fun. Other passions and interests cover windsurfing, reading and photography.

    Hi Asli,

    Just been directed here from Facebook and had a quick look around at lunch time. Really interesting stuff – I’m planning on coming back and having another search around later. Who knows, you might even inspire me to have a bash at the new-fangled technology thing!

    Hi Asli,

    I would like to take this opportunity to briefly introduce myself. My name is Dobromir Nichev and I am a Marketing Associate at Solaborate. I’ve read several articles you’ve done and was curious if you would be interested in doing a story on Solaborate.
    Solaborate, is the first professional social and collaboration platform dedicated specifically to the technology ecosystem, and received over $1 million in seed funding from angels and individual investors so far.

    We are launching Solaborate mobile app on November 18th, 2014. Would you be interested in receiving a press release about this, under embargo for November 18th, 2014 6:00 am PCT?

    Download the app here: Google Play

    Let me know your thoughts, I would be happy to provide more information, send you press release content or answer any questions.

    Best regards,
