There will be two cohorts for this course. One will be for participants that can meet in-person in Shenzhen. The other will be live-virtual, using Zoom. We cannot guarantee that the in-person cohort will be able to meet due to constantly changing COVID protection measures.

Teacher lead teams that communicate effectively and work interdependently improve student learning!
