“I’ve been running variations on this course since 2008 and it’s been one of those workshops that has stood the test of time. This version is now aligned with CCGL and is a great opportunity to consider an overseas partnership whether you’re applying for visit funding or thinking of finding a partnership school. Educational partnerships do work best when they are reciprocal, equitable and collaborative involving more than just one teacher per school. And even though both partners schools build a trusting relationship over time, I’ve found this workshop – which I’ve run run here and overseas – has helped school staff move in that direction. Good for new partnerships as well as those refreshing an older partnership, this workshop helps schools take ownership and draw in teachers so the partnership really does permeate across the school. Do get in touch if you want to chat about this course before booking.” Lynn, GLADE
Quotes from Summer course:-
- The whole course was extremely useful. The wide range of tasks were engaging and thought provoking. It was also useful to be able to ask questions and listen to advice about the different stages of setting up partnerships. The online communication and learning platforms worked very well.
- The shared space set up by Lynn was excellent and the use of the active learning was extremely useful. The course was geared so well to this new media and Lynn made sure we were involved and it wasn’t a lecture.
- I think every aspect was really engaging, I don’t think more could have been done. Love ‘the active learning platform’ and will definitely be using this!
