Earlier this summer my colleague and fellow trainer with World Learning/SIT trainer Liliia and myself applied for a grant and guess what… we won! In the coming academic year (2019/20) we will be managing the program and running the course for teacher trainers in Ukraine together. The title is Teacher Training Essentials 2020. Some more information on this page.
As you can see, we are at a very initial stage of preparation for the program (don’t even have a separate site or page for it yet!). I just wanted to share the piece of news with you, and to say that some posts in the coming school year will be about teacher training and trainer training. Hope it is fine with you.
I will be giving a short talk about the program at a Teacher Training Day in Kyiv next week. If you happen to have extra 3 minutes on your hands, could you please help me prepare for the talk by completing these sentences in the comments:
- Teacher Training is __________.
- Teacher Trainer is NOT (necessarily) __________.
- (optional) Ask a question about the program based on its description. We are thinking to offer it as a handout/follow up after my talk.
I am still figuring out the format of the talk and ‘playing’ with ways to engage the audience. Advice and ideas appreciated!
Thank you for reading, and stay tuned!
Update on 25 November: here is our Teacher Training Space site with more information about the program, and if you scroll to the very end, you will see the Application Form. Looking forward to reading yours till 25 December 2019!
