Kia ora tātou
For some of you, Monday will find you teaching students face-to-face in your classroom. I hope you find time over this weekend to take a short break, as it’s been a long term already if you spent your last holidays getting ready to teach online! I’m still going to run online workshops/chats but need to know when the best time will be. Also I’m interested in knowing what topics you want me to cover. 1min survey here.
