There are still places left on APACs summer training courses. The four courses will run from July 5th-15th 100% online. They will consist of a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous learning. I’ll be running a course on teaching methodologies and lesson frameworks. You’ll learn about a range of approaches and techniques and put them into practice while working on a portfolio of lesson plans and materials that you can use straightaway.
Follow the link below for more information about my course and the three other fantastic courses on offer. A great opportunity for professional development!
