Adult Educator/ Consultant

Cambridge International

Recruited by Cambridge International Education to deliver adult education workshops for aspiring Cambridge teachers due to my curriculum and pedagogy proficiency. I have delivered multiday trainings to adult learners to prepare them to teach the AICE Global Perspectives and Research course and the AICE English Language course. To capture professional learners’ respect and interest during these workshops, I researched best practices for adult education and created targeted and specific curriculum materials they could employ immediately. I collaborate with UK based trainers and other partners to improve each subsequent training based on participant feedback.
