What is the Teaching Boost series?

The Teaching Boost series started in January 2022 as the January Boost! It was a series of 20 workshops for teachers in the areas of language development for teachers, teaching systems (grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation), teaching skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking), and classroom management.

During the first term of 2022, another 16 workshops took place, and so far nearly 400 teachers have registered for the workshops. In the second term, the series continues with 12 completely new workshops. The new workshops in the series will still be on Saturdays, from 2 to 4 or from 2 to 5 p.m. (BRT), and they’ll focus on a wide range of topics.

NB: The context in which I (have) work(ed) is essentially teaching adults, both face-to-face and online. This is therefore the context that informs all of the courses in the new series.
