Thanks to the School of Foreign Languages, Eastern Mediterranean University, for running a one-day workshop festival to share new ideas and research conducted the SFL instructors.
- The depth and breadth of content in the workshops demonstrates the level of expertise and commitment of SFL instructors to the profession. It also highlights the status of SFL-EMU in North Cyprus (and indeed Turkey) and is a tribute to the ongoing support for teacher development and innovation by the SFL-EMU administration.
- The School of Foreign Languages at EMU certainly offers a great deal of inspiration to sister institutions in North Cyprus and abroad, in how the investment in teacher development yields such a wealth of experience and expertise.
Here are links to the PREZI content that formed the basis of the two plenaries I was privileged to share with my former colleagues at the School of Foreign Languages, Eastern Mediterranean University.
