Our Goal

To empower English language educators to be leaders in their schools and mentor colleagues to inspire students to master English.

Participant Profile

Teachers of English (including coordinators, supervisors, and advisors) at public schools in Mexico; trainers of future public school English teachers at public universities or normales in Mexico; and teachers of English at public universities that serve under-resourced populations and with whom IAPE has a pre-established agreement. 

The selection committee seeks candidates with leadership potential and advanced English proficiency who are committed to working together to make a difference in their schools following their participation. Because group composition is a critical factor in assuring the program's impact in Mexico, preference is given to groups of three or four educators from the same state, with different levels of responsibility, and who are committed to working together as a team to implement new teaching practices in their states.

Program Description

The IAPE Teachers' Collaborative USA takes place over a two-week period in July. Participants are housed in residence halls at Dartmouth College, an Ivy League institution located in Hanover, New Hampshire, USA. Each day includes seminars conducted by Dartmouth faculty and local educators. In addition to these interactive sessions, participants are introduced to dynamic language teaching techniques pioneered by world-renown language professor John A. Rassias and seminars conducted by Dartmouth faculty members and other leading educators on such topics as language assessment, interdisciplinary instruction, mentoring, and working with children at risk.

Cultural activities and excursions round out the program. Over 85% of each participant's program costs are covered by the program sponsors. The balance is covered by each teacher's home institution or state authorities. Program costs include round trip transportation, housing, all meals, all instructional costs, all teaching materials, medical insurance, cultural activities and excursions, and U.S. visa fees when applicable.

... IAPE has given me so many reasons to keep trying and to keep working for a better education. Thank you all for everything… You have made a difference in my life and my teaching. — Gabriela C., Colegio de Estudios Científicos y Tecnológicos del Estado de Jalisco
