2015 in ITM

Teaching & Learning. Travel & Culture.

2015-09-09-conversation-pixabay-300x200What do we talk about? This is the question we asked ourselves when planning ITM a year ago. The cities and countries we have visited. The adventures we have had. A “light bulb” moment in class. Ideas for better practice. The kindness shown by one person – young or old – to another, and our contributors have risen to the challenge. As we look back over the year, we have picked out some memorable articles from 2015 to reflect on. Thank you to all our contributors and readers for your continued support!
