Flipped Learning and Learner Independence - MEXICO

Information on the upcoming course I will be working on in Guadalajara, Mexico:

Participants are introduced to current educational trends to broaden their horizons for teaching English. They discover what flipped classrooms involve and design classroom related activities. They also investigate different techniques to guide and support independent learners ready to face the English language needs of today’s world in and out of the classroom. This programe is active, participative, providing a series of practical ideas that can be applied for teaching English in Mexico.
