Is your goal to improve teaching strategies in China utilizing innovative pedagogical techniques through continuing education?

By studying with native English-speaking educators, the Chinese English teachers learn inter-cultural methodologies and best practices. In some cases, you may be the first and only native English speaker to teach STEAM or PBL skills to your students. Your Chinese teachers will benefit from your contribution and will in turn use your techniques to improve life-outcomes for tens of thousands of students.
