Building on its previous success, the Centre for the Advanced Study of the Arab World (CASAW) is running a 7-day training (2 days in eLearning skills and 5 days in communicative teaching).

The two events complement one another and the skills acquired during the first training are transferable to the course that follows.

It is expected that the next training will run in April 2016 over a 7-day period and will be based at the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (50 George Square) at The University of Edinburgh. Interested applicants may apply for one or both of these courses. Enrolment is limited to 12 participants to allow trainees to work through their own specific needs.
