Celebrating APRIR’s 45th anniversary together
Calling out to teachers!
Sharing is at the core of what we do as teachers.
2019 brought us together to celebrate some of the good practices local teachers carry out in their classrooms in “Sharing Teaching”.
This year, on September 4th, we want to celebrate APRIR’s 45th anniversary in an online session featuring a series of 20-minute presentations which explore locally relevant ideas for effective classroom practice in a rapidly changing educational scenario. The aim is to enhance our practice and strengthen our community through collaboration and networking.
We are looking for proposals that address a topic that is relevant for a particular context by describing an activity/ project that has been implemented in a classroom or institution to meet specific needs in a creative or innovative way.
Some possible topics are:
You do not need to be an APRIR member to submit your proposal. Given equal merit, however, priority will be given to members.
