Participants' Comments

This was truly a very satisfying experience. I got to review a few things I already knew but hadn't thought about in a while, and I got to learn tons of other new things. I will be taking with me many great tips and ideas from my peers. Thank you to my tutor for her time, patience and especially her great feedback. I'm definitely looking forward to taking other modules.

I have to say that this has been a very rewarding experience apart from one of my best online courses. I will miss the excitement of logging in to read the tutor’s comments and feedback, as well as my peers´. I have learnt from our tutor and my peers´ contributions as well. It was a pleasure working with everyone on this course.

It has been a pleasure being part of this course, I’ve learned so much! I’m very happy that I decided to take the module. All the content was very helpful and made me think about many things I could improve on and things which I am now using in my lessons. It was great to meet all the people on the course and help each other by sharing our teaching experiences.

In this course I have learned many things that I have been starting to use in my classroom and lessons. It has been working awesomely; my students love 'Art Thursday' and they even create their own activities! Even though we are teachers, it is also true that we never stop learning! It is great to learn from other teachers who love what they do and from a great tutor. I really am very thankful for having the opportunity to do this and I am eager to have another adventure like this one!

This course has been an incredible experience for me. I think it uses very interesting techniques to help us improve our work in the classroom. I’d like to thank my tutor and the UDP Admin team for their time and dedication to the course and to each individual participant. It has been very interesting, I really enjoyed the activities.

It has been great to share ideas and learn with the other participants over the past 6 weeks. I have enjoyed learning about this interesting approach to language learning and exploring ways to incorporate many different language activities into arts and crafts classes. I hope to use many of these activities now and in the future.

It was a pleasure working on this course, I really learned a lot. It made me feel that we always have the chance to advance and find new ways to keep improving. My colleagues points of view and personal experiences showed me that even though we are in different parts of the world, we suffer the same kind of problems when it comes to teaching. I appreciate you sharing those experiences with me, I’ll definitely consider them in my future teaching.

This course was an enriching experience that allowed me to reflect on different issues related to literacy. Thank you fellow classmates for sharing your own situations, ideas, teaching strategies and resources! This collaboration is essential as we continue to grow as teachers!

Sherry Dickerson (Irapuato, Mexico)

I am so glad that I took part in this course as I have learnt so many things about teaching. We need 'someone or something' to remind us that we should and could do things better. I am looking forward to taking another course like this one related to teaching English.

I would like to thank everyone for the experience we have shared together, I have learned a lot of new things reading your experiences and opinions. It's been a pleasure to work with teachers from different countries and to see that all of us love the English language and our profession too.

A good teacher can always become better, one of the most powerful ways to do this is to observe other teachers. You will learn something every time you do it. I would like to say thank you, for sharing, for giving me new ideas, for expressing your opinions, it was a pleasure working with all of you on this course.

When you do an online course, you would never imagine being so engaging. Not only do you learn a lot, but it’s really enjoyable. I strongly recommend it!

I am deeply thankful for everything I have learnt during this course. The path was clear and the e-Tutor was more than nice. Thank you all for enlightening me with your questions, opinions and support. I appreciate it a lot. This course gave me the opportunity to self-reflect on topics familiar to all teachers which we never have time to think about due to busy schedules and other issues. It has been great meeting people from so many different places and countries linked by the love of teaching English. I hope we can apply everything we have learnt to improve our teaching and make our students' learning meaningful!

This is my first year as a bilingual teacher, and the courses I have done with UDP have been a key factor to successfully face this new challenge. The materials and the support of the tutors have been very useful, and the development of the activities allowed me to analyze, reflect on and improve my teaching.

The rhythm of the course was quite quick and demanding, but also very complete and interesting. In general, I think it was very rewarding: I learnt some things and I had the opportunity to reflect on my teaching style, and share my views with others, which is always very enriching. Despite all the hard work, I really enjoyed it.

This online experience has been great; it has given me enough freedom to participate and it has let me manage my schedule very well. I’m sharing a lot of experiences with colleagues from different places and learning lots of stuff, correcting habits and reinforcing information and techniques. These kinds of courses are perfect for people like me who have experience and not enough time to go to school to continue our professional development. Thanks!
