Every year, language teachers and linguists from all over the world come together to take part in the largest professional development event in its category, TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages). With more than 6,500 attendees, 1,000 educational sessions, and 150 exhibits, in rainy Seattle, Maria José Ieks (school principal) and Carina Rebelato (English coordinator) attended sessions about professional development opportunities for English language educators.
“It was rewarding to notice that our team at Tigrinhos and Golden Tigers already uses some of the ideas that were presented. Furthermore, it was extremely inspiring to learn about new ways to explore and apply them in different contexts, enriching important themes that make up our Teaching Plans, such as multiculturalism, inclusion, and the project about values,” said Maria José.
In lively interactive sessions, educators were able to develop a global perspective through the exchange of ideas and practices, integrating knowledge of current trends in the field.
Now, the pedagogical department is looking forward to putting new projects into practice, engaging students even more by encouraging them to learn languages through the most up-to-date and useful practices.
