17 Dec Nurturing Independence, Awareness, and Resilience in our Younger Learners
May 27 th, 11:30 – 12:30 local time Bucharest, Romania
The aspiration to help our learners become more independent, aware and resilient is not new. However, the uncertainty and unpredictability of today’s world have arguably made it more imperative than ever to facilitate the development of these qualities in our students. That is easier said than done in the midst of a global pandemic, but that simply means it is even more important to try. In this session we will look at practical means of achieving these goals with our younger learners, regardless of the challenges and obstacles that may be involved.
