The Place

If you have ever felt uninspired, unprepared, unmotivated or simply lazy, this workshop might be just what you need. We will discover various ways of developing teachers’ creativity by looking for resources and ideas in some not-so-obvious nooks and crannies. Exploring ways of finding inspiration everywhere through, among others, mindfulness techniques means we never run short of ideas and, what is even more important, we do not get bored. This workshop should provide you with a lot of low-preparation, high-outcome activities and some ideas for adapting our resources for various age groups and levels.  The ability to do this is not only beneficial for our students but empowering for the teachers, helping them enhance their creativity, develop teaching skills and avoid burnout.
