Each session is designed to be independent of the others, so that you may attend any number desired to the extent you feel useful. Additional assistance, resources and information may be provided upon request.



Each session will consist of a theoretical topic or topics, followed by time for small groups of participants to actively produce exercises and activities designed to allow them the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice.




Planned session content

  • Session 1               Introduction: What is teaching? What is learning? Definitions and working models
