Bigelow works with English teachers in Costa Rica
Associate Professor Martha Bigelow was invited by Department of Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) alumna Emilena Rodriguez (M.Ed.) to work with English teachers this summer at the Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica. Earlier in August, Bigelow conducted a two-day workshop on curriculum design for 40 professors who teach English to undergraduate students of majors other than English.
After the workshop, Bigelow led teams of professors in the development of new syllabi guided by the Common European Framework and relevant themes and genres. These new courses are expected to be revised and implemented in the next academic year.
