Due to security reasons we decided not to hold our teachers training meeting in Instambul as it was scheduled, as painful as that decision might be, because we were eager to see, for the first time in my case and once more, for the rest of teachers, such a beautiful city, meet the Turkish students again and enjoy the hospitality of our Turkish collegues. However, instead of putting it off altogether, our Dutch colleagues, Yvonne and Baukje, promptly offered themselves and their college facilities as an alternative venue.
We made travel arrangements as soon as we could and before leaving school for Christmas holidays our hostesses had everything settled, programme emailed, as well as every other thing each of us was supposed to get ready for the meeting. Kryster from Sweeden and Yilmaz from Turkey agreed to be in charge of the training sessions. Thank you.
Sessions started, we learned how to use very useful and interesting apps that would mean an improvement in our preparation work and classes at school. Thank you Yilmaz and Kryster for being so patient and explaining every thing as if we has just come from outer space, you really made it work.
Thank you, again, Yvonne, Baukje, Annfloor, Sylvaine for the trip to Groningen Museum, the Rodin exhibition was a very nice bonus to our photography safari around town getting stuff to be used later during the video editing sessions. Thank you for making it possible. And I would also like to welcome all the new members from Sweden, Turkey and the Netherlands. We really felt at home and among friends.
