Reviews about this course

The course was very interesting, especially because the course participants were eager to work together, exchange best practices, share different points of view and tackle positive and critical aspects when applying new methodologies with students. We had the opportunity to experience activities related to the content of the course, always supported by a very professional and nice teacher trainer!

Attilio Galimberti

The course has been of great help because we have practised different methodologies to make students be the centre of the learning process. I have learned about flipped classrooms and applications to use in the lessons to motivate our students and make them more autonomous. Moreover, we have shared our teaching practices and knowledge of cooperative method with other colleagues from Europe and overseas who have been very active and enthusiastic in the activities proposed. Finally, the teacher has been very helpful and has created a really nice atmosphere of work and creativity between the participants.

Μαρία Γκοτσοπούλου

I thoroughly enjoyed my study week at Europass Academy in Florence. Our teacher / instructor Lorenzo Gaspari has done an outstanding job to cater for the individual needs of the eight participants from four different countries who have come from various teaching environments. (…) Besides his outstanding interpersonal skills – he is highly professional in his teaching approach. He always came well prepared to class and followed a clear concept through to the end.
