A statement from EMU-FLEPS management indicated that the course was very productive and that academic staff who participated in the course found it to be very fruitful. Management noted that the Professional Development Team will be sharing what they learned at the course with all members of FLEPS academic staff via workshops and seminars. Therefore all academic staff will be made aware of the developments and innovations in English language teaching.
