Newsletter No. 55, February 2017

 

Dear members and colleagues,

The year 2016 is now over and looking back on the months left behind, we're delighted how much happened at APIBA last year! And there’s so much still in the pipeline for 2017! Read on to find out about the wide range of professional development opportunities that our Association offered during the year just finished. You'll find that our newsletter, to be released in a quarterly fashion as from now on, has been revamped with a friendlier, brand-new format.

And some breaking news: APIBA’s first event in 2017 is now already underway! Attending APIBA Business English Conference in collaboration with Escuela de Lenguas y Estudios Extranjeros, Universidad de Belgrano, on March 4th, will surely give you an insight into what it means to be a Business English Trainer.

Finally, we would really appreciate it if you could let interested colleagues know about the various professional development opportunities offered by APIBA. This way, you could help us in our mission to link, develop, and support.

With best wishes,

APIBA Executive Committee

 

2016 in retrospect

March

  • •  SIG's Opening Event

  • •  New SIG: Mindfulness. This SIG was created with the aim of exploring what mindfulness is, the changes occurring in our brains when we practise it and for all those looking for new ways to develop awareness and gain insight into the choices we make in class and life.

 

April

Workshop "Mindful Teaching" by Prof. Ricardo Cavallini (APIBA member), organised by APIBA's Mindfulness SIG. 120 attendees!

 

May

Diplomatura en Capacitación en Inglés de Negocios (UB-APIBA). APIBA and Universidad de Belgrano signed an agreement to jointly deliver this course, which is starting in April 2017.

 

June

APIBA Drama Club. It opened with the objective of learning about drama techniques, improvising, interacting and practising English in a very relaxed atmosphere, all of which involves a unique bodily experience. A successful project that we hope will keep on growing in the years to come!

 

July

APIBA On Tour. This innovative project was launched last July, its aim being to reach teachers in the suburbs and all over the province of Buenos Aires where there are no local associations, to support their initiatives of continual professional development, to encourage collaboration with teacher training institutions and to spread the word and share our mission.
