NOBLE – Network of Business Language Educators – has put this series of webinars together for language for specific purposes teachers and professionals from different fields who support interdisciplinary studies: language, culture and specific disciplines.
You can register for the webinars for free and the recordings will be available on YouTube shortly after the presentations. This is an amazing resource for educators who are looking for innovative ways to create global connections for their students and to integrate areas of study. What’s great nowadays is that we can access these valuable resources for free and we can learn from the experiences and tips of professionals in the field who are going beyond typical approaches to create lifelong learning opportunities for students!
