Dear English teachers,

Central Region, the English Inspectorate, the Headquarter for Civic Education and Shared Life and CET (Center for Educational Technology) are glad to invite you to register to an in-service course for English teachers as part of the "Shared Learning: Better Together" program. “Better Together” fosters partnerships between schools from various educational streams in order to promote conversational, reading and writing skills in English, as well as 21st century skills for life in a diverse society. The program is based on the Northern Irish model, which promotes pedagogic excellence through shared learning.

During this period of hybrid learning on the backdrop of the Covid 19 spread, Shared Learning is also an opportunity to practice digital and dialogue skills, as well as teaching and learning through techno-pedagogical means.

Shared Learning aims to nurture conversation, reading and writing skills to promote communication in daily contexts, in line with the new English teaching curriculum, through shared lessons of schools from different educational sectors.

This training course's goals include:

Practicing Shared Learning tools, including through shared creation or experience of art.

Co-planning and implementation of shared lessons and their adaptation to the settings and requirements of each pair of schools.

Fostering tolerance and the values of shared society in our mixed city and classes.

Nurturing our community of practice as a forum of learning and consultation.
