The American Center in Moscow invites English teachers to join a meeting of the biweekly Teacher2Teacher series on December 14 at 6:00-7:00 PM MSK. In this meeting you will meet State Department Regional English Language Officer Jennifer Uhler and learn about online professional development opportunities in English language instruction.
Teacher2Teacher Series for English-language teachers has been hosted virtually at the American Center in Moscow throughout the past year. These biweekly meetings are a great opportunity for English teachers to get hands-on advice about various aspects of foreign language instruction, share successful practices, resources, innovative pedagogies, and work on their professional development together with like-minded colleagues.
These workshops are free and take place online via Zoom. They are intended for English-language instructors teaching in various educational contexts, as well as teacher-trainers and students pursuing a degree in teaching English.
