So, the studies and activities that I have done so far includes interdisciplinary approach. I have also put a lot of effort on web 2.0 tools and engaged my students with technology. I have attended to an international Conference AILA as a speaker on CLIL methods. Moreover, the process of choosing books and materials matter a lot and I made sure that the books are promoting gender equality. The ones that include discrimination of any kind, I contacted with the publishers and shared my concerns. Apart from that, during and after pandemic, I have used different teaching methods, one of which stands out the most: Flipped Classroom. Nowadays, we have been carrying out 2 different ESEP Projects and as teachers, we
are engaging out students with different cultures as much as possible.
