English Language Fellow and Peace Corps Volunteer Deliver a Workshop on Harnessing Group Work

English Language Fellow Kim Chilmonik, in collaboration with Peace Corps Volunteer Stephanie Smith, facilitated a half-day workshop for Battambang Regional Teacher Training Center teacher trainees. The interactive workshop was on the topic of collaborative learning.

There were sixty-six teacher trainees in attendance, and they were able to work together to learn about collaborative learning and how it benefits their students. One of the main focuses of the workshop was to give teachers the tools to manage large multi-level classes. After these students graduate, one of their biggest challenges will be managing classes composed of  students with varying strengths and weaknesses.

The workshop culminated with a “troubleshooting” activity where teacher trainees found solutions to common problems that can arise when facilitating group work. The workshop allowed participants the space and time to brainstorm and discuss how to adapt and implement new strategies in their classrooms.
