Monthly staff spotlight - Maria Dolores Iglesias Mora
Being a second language learner myself has reinforced the use of the communicative approach. Innovation and creativity can be demonstrated in the materials development that Maria has been involved with all these years. Having a reflective practitioner perspective has enabled her to show a sympathetic approach to the students’ way of learning by mainly focussing on how to enhance classroom dynamics through one-to-one, pair or group work, encouraging the active participation of students in a positive learning environment.
