We started with Miss Caceda´s Presentaction : A Snapshot on becoming an ELT teacher in Peru: Are we Replicating or Transforming our Practices? –a brilliant interactive session where the various models to educate teachers of English,a) the craft model, (b) the science model, and (c) the reflective practitioner model were revisited and there was reflection on what it is best according to our socio-cultural and economical contexts.
We continued with the FORUM,being the Panelists: Miss Norma Vecorena Minedu Consultant.

We couldn’t be prouder of having the above ELT professionals as Panelists in this important ELT issue, since we were nurtured with very interesting and challenging points of view, specially on the self –determination in improving personal and proffesionally in our field.
Then we had the questions and answers time , after that paticipants worked in teams and writing drafts of Project Propsal, briefly ones, this was the most important part since we could se an outcome, which will take into account when organizing the next Iatefl Peru Academic Event.
