I am an English language teacher in Georgia.
I have been working as an invited lecturer and team leader at Ilia State University and as a teacher trainer at National Center for Teacher Professional Development. I also work as an English language expert for the implementation of the National Curriculum at the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia. Most recently, I started to work for British Council in Georgia as an online teacher community facilitator. I also have been a teacher trainer at PH International, Tbilisi, Georgia
As a teacher, I am enthralled and challenged by how my students develop, learn, and interact. I always try to help my students become independent and encourage them to take more responsibility for their learning. I am interested in creating a democratic environment in the classroom and using democratic principles and ideas in the teaching process. I think that the learning process should be active when students are engaged with the learning materials through discussions, problem-solving, case studies, role plays, and other real-life tasks. The most valuable thing about teaching and learning is to place a greater degree of responsibility on the learners and to provide meaningful guidance and feedback. I do believe that it is active learning that enables my students to apply and transfer knowledge. Moreover, I always keep in mind to treat my students as individuals, respect them, and feel a responsibility towards them. Teaching is difficult but I do believe that teachers can make a difference.
In this article we answer some questions regarding the decision to transform Learn to Change from an association to a collective.
In this article, we talk about what we mean by Collective – the new form chosen by L2C – and how you can join it.
Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
If you feel you are committed to the vision and mission of the association, then your place is here.
We are sure that becoming a member will benefit you in many ways. Read the product description for more details or click sign up now.
