This programme offers a mix of English language immersion, cultural exposure and technology enhanced teaching ideas for experienced teachers.
These courses are designed for second level teachers who are interested in how technology enhanced learning can be put into practice in their classroom. The course sessions are hands-on workshops which give the teacher lots of practical techniques that they can bring back to their classroom and students and shadowing of real classes where these re being used. The course is delivered through the medium of English, which gives participants an opportunity to refresh and improve their communication skills in an authentic workplace environment.

Teaching can be a very stressful profession and the benefits of meditation on stress reduction have been well documented. We teach and learn better when we feel grounded and present and alert to what is happening in the present moment. The course aims to teach simple practical meditation techniques for use in the language classroom as well as allowing teachers to develop a toolkit of simple meditation techniques to support their own well-being.
