Workshop 1: Teaching Grammar Communicatively
Workshop 2: Using Educational Technology in the ESL Classroom
The workshops implemented are: Teaching Grammar Communicatively and Using Educational Technology in the ESL Classroom. At these 2 workshops, K12 teachers had access to valuable knowledge from the OPEN program to apply to their teaching and professional development. Teachers also questioned trainers and facilitators about the U.S. government's OPEN scholarship program.
At the end of the workshops, the participants shared their positive feedback about the workshops’ content and the excellent performance of the trainers and organizers. They believe that they will effectively apply what they have learnt into their daily teaching contexts.
