25th anniversary event: slides p
This is a brief report on the event "Education Matters", held in Natal on April 6th, 2013 at "Universidade Federal do Rio Grande doNorte", where we gathered sixty-five participants.
The main idea of this event was to include broader issues concerning education, rather than focusing on the language only. Having decided that, we invited school psychologist Patricia Motta, who opened the event with a talk on discipline entitled "Estabelecendo Limites".
The second presentation was given by Professor Dr Rosanne Bezerra de Araujo, coordinator of PIBID, and Kleiton da Silva, a "Letras" scholarship student. They talked about PIBID (ProgramaInstitucional de Bolsa de Iniciação a Docência), a program atUFRN which aims at building a bridge between the reality of public schools and the academic knowledge acquired at the university.

Professor Dr Janaina Weissheimer followed on with a presentation on "Neuroscience and second language learning".
We ended the event with a raffle of gifts offered by publishers (Oxford, Richmond, Macmillan, M&M, Longman). In addition to the publishers, we also had the support ofCultura Inglesa Natal and Proenglish.
The organising committee called participants' attention to the importance of becoming Braz Tesol members, in order to promote on-going professional development in a dynamic and organised ELT community in our State. We are counting on the increase in number of members in good standing up to the next event, which will take place on June 1st.
We are now in the process of forming a new board for the RN chapter.
