This workshop is the best out of the many workshops I have attended, and it has benefited me in many different aspects. Although the 3-week program looked long, I felt that the time flew by quickly because there were so many useful and interesting things to do every day. Some of the many tasks included reading the materials assigned by the program directors, writing reflections, preparing for the practicum, and sharing my strengths with the other teachers. It may seem overwhelming, but I learned a lot from Professor Tseng and the other participants. I learned the theories and approaches of teaching, the concept of backward design, the 5C standards used in foreign language teaching, useful technology skills in teaching, and teaching ideas from other teachers. I think that I will use what we learned in my own classroom.
