Masterclass Academic Skills, an environmental case study. “The Kick-off 1.0”

Fri, 16th Jan. 2015, Kundapura, India!

A brand new initiative! A masterclass for Indian students that is focused on gaining skills. It is a 8 week long program in which we are going to challenge the students to get out of the books and learn while doing. Topics like project work, debating, presenting, research and learn strategies will be covered. Time for action.


Masterclass Academic Skills, an environmental case study. “Learn strategies”

Monday 2nd February, Kundapura, India.

The students ran up the stairs into the classroom, unprecedented enthusiasm. We chose a different set up, sitting on the ground the Indian way. Together we worked on a learn plan for improving English and introduced the assignment for the week. At the end of the class we gave all the students the extraordinary picture we made last lesson.

It is crazy, I am always leaving these sessions with more energy than I entered, it a pleasure to work together with this team.
