So, the EFL teacher professional development course “GetSet for Successful Career” is over. This course has been initiated in the framework of cooperation with the Islamic Azad University, which bonded about a hundred teachers from Ukrainian and Iranian universities. Professors of the Iranian university, the key presenters of the course, Dr. Gholam-Reza Abbasian and Dr. Seyed Reza Beh-Afari Parpinchy, with their sincere and open desire to share their knowledge, managed to unite the Ukrainian and Iranian academic cohorts, create a very special learning atmosphere and show the new strands of the valuable course content. For almost a month, the participants of the course have been joining each session, asking questions, and sharing their impressions.
This partnership experience with an Iranian university is new and very valuable for us, being an opportunity for us to acquire new knowledge and embrace the cultural component of teaching in Iranian universities.
Every ending is a new beginning, so we sincerely hope for further cooperation with interesting and already dear speakers in new projects, courses, academic and research activities.
