A Fulbright Seminar: U.S. Best Teaching Practices hosted by N.D.M.C. Navyug School
There were at least 30 teachers in attendance for today's seminar. Today's objective was to demonstrate student-centered, interactive and technology embedded activities used in the United States. Fulbright scholars and presenters, Breanna Reynolds from Horizon High School and Jeff Youde from Seattle, Washington designed and led today's seminar with guest speaker, Erica Bailin, highlighting differentiation and gifted education.
We were greeted with tremendous generosity and warmth. The mutual respect between the presenters and the audience of educators was inspiring. We learned a great deal from each other and look forward to future projects. It was an amazing experience.
