Creativity Seminar in Bayamo, Cuba

Cuba 2017

Dr. Monica Mulholland, Ph.D., ESL professor at the Virginia Tech Language and Culture Institute, National Capital Region, had the honor to spend the week of July 24-28 in Bayamo, Cuba facilitating a seminar on Creativity and Multiple Intelligences in collaboration with Dr. Ana Lado, Ph.D., Applied Linguistics professor at Marymount University. The video below features snapshots of the seminar, in which the participants engaged in group-work to debate, role-play, and use body-language and art to express themselves in the target language. It was a most rewarding and inspiring experience of intercultural exchange in the context of the “Escuelas de verano para educadores” (Summer School for teachers) carried out in several Cuban cities every year both in English and in Spanish. The creativity workshop was attended by more than thirty enthusiastic English instructors and advanced students from the Granma province.
