Dear All,

Please find the news and updates for this week below:

a. Last Week’s Session

Last week, Can Danışmant run his session on flipped learning with the participation of 3 instructors. Participants had the chance to assume the role of students and completed a flipped task before the session. They also shared their reflections and exchange ideas on how to integrate the principles of flipped learning into their teaching. The session recording and tasks can be found in Z-drive TLDU folder.

b. This Week’s Session (pre-task required)

This week, our colleague, Sedef Güzelyurt, will give a session on using literature in EFL classes in light of critical pedagogy which was pioneered by Paulo Freire. This session entails a sample lesson in which the students discuss all the above-mentioned issues via a literary text, which requires a pre-task.
