Spring Workshop 2015

The 2015 Workshop took place on March 7th in Dublin West Education Centre. Huge thanks to all who worked on the organisation of this day.

We were delighted to welcome Claire Matthews of the PDST to our Spring 2015 Workshop in early March. Claire treated us to a thought-provoking session on writing in the MFL classroom. Claire’s Prezi can be found below. This was followed by the Methodology Carousel. The results of our discussion at the Methodology Carousel were compiled by members of the committee and can be found below as well.  If you want to read tweets about the day with photos, links and ideas, click here.
