The Mexico Teacher Professional Development

This program engaged English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers (grades 10-12) from all Mexico in a transformative process of professional development. A first cohort of 194 participants spent six weeks in a technology-rich, academic, immersive English environment at Arizona State University in 2015. Participants worked with leading education experts to master advanced teaching methodologies, explored the latest in technology-infused classrooms, identifed sustainable strategies for reform, and discussed techniques for supporting a self-initiated, self-directed culture of excellence in Mexico’s public education system. Resonating through the experience was an awareness of interdisciplinary approaches, a respect for inclusive and culturally relevant pedagogies, and an emphasis on personal reflection as a tool for professional growth.

A second cohort of 150 arrived July 18, 2016, they will remain until August 26,2016.
