The presenters express that the conference was a great networking opportunity and they were able to generate new ideas on how they can endeavor to expand their skills in professional qualifications, not only in local context but at International level.

  • Awareness of the issues being faced by your learners. A little empathy goes a long way in motivating learners.
  • Being a ‘reflective practitioner is the way to go
