For Kindergarten and Primary School Teachers and Coordinators
For participants to:

- Develop their knowledge and understanding of collaboration from a critical socio-constructivist perspective.
- Critically reflect on and evaluate their own teaching.
- Build up their knowledge of collaboration and its practice in the classroom.
- Reflect on their own learning strategies and CPD.
- Why is there a need for collaboration?
- Cooperation and collaboration
- How to collaborate in a digital age: challenges and opportunities
- Team work
- Diversity and inclusion
- Knowledge construction
- The mobilisation of competences
- 21st century skills: communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and confidence.
This is an experiential and interactive on-line 4-week training which invites participants to learn about their underlying learning stance and its implications for the ELT classroom. Every participant will have the chance to rethink and enhance their teaching skills in collaboration and interaction with other colleagues. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss, analyse and explore possibilities to find ways of implementing collaboration in its many guises. There are two zoom sessions which accompany participants' learning, one in the opening week and the other in the closing week. Zoom sessions have been scheduled on Wednesday 6th from 6 to 7 pm & Wednesday 27th from 6 to 7 pm.
