Washington: Jointly organised by Washington’s Office of Tibet and the Tibetan Association in Northern California (TANC), a workshop on SEE Learning was conducted for teachers of 18 Tibetan weekend schools in North America.
The workshop conducted from 17-19 March is on par with the resolution passed by the 20th North America Tibetan Associations Conference. The trainers for this workshop is led by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi ( Executive Director at Emory University’s Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics), Tsondue Samphel (Senior translator/interpreter at Emory), Los Angeles-based veteran teacher Tenzin Chemi Nuwa and Tenzin Norbu Nangsel. The latter two presented instruction on ‘effective instructional strategies of teaching Tibetan to Tibetan children abroad’.
