Teacher Development Program

Welcome to the Brainwave Teacher Development Program!

The Teacher Development Program is a vital resource for today’s successful teacher. We have created various modules that cover methodology reference materials and pedagogical support notes.

 

Each module is on one topic, which range from CLIL to Constructivism, and from Classroom Management to Brain-Based Learning.

 

The Teacher Development Program modules can be easily printed out and combined to become an important resource for your professional development and those of your colleagues.
