    In the age of blended learning, is it possible to find a perfect balance between the traditional and virtual classroom?

  4. Sanja Rašković: Recycle and play with me 

Teachers often look for the new ideas on how to teach and revise grammar, vocabulary, test reading and listening skills. I’ve come up with and in this engaging workshop will share many fun activities using recycled materials such as bottle caps, bottles, egg cartons, paper and plastic cups, yoghurt containers. It’s cheap, children love them, and they are effective.

Dear colleagues,

The last HUPE Split Branch meeting in the school year 2021/2022 will take place on Moday, 27th June2022, at 11:00 a.m. at Osnovna škola Sućidar, Perivoj Ane Roje 1, Split.


  1. Davorka Bronzić, Nataša Bebić Bačan & Marina Marega Selecki: 

Erasmus+ project “BETTER TOGETHER”, Elementary school Župa dubrovačka, Mlini 

As educators, we are all aware of the fact that including the collaborative learning, tolerance, and equality for all, as well as the intercultural dimension in our curriculum and everyday practice is a must to improve the 21st century skills of our pupils and staff.

The main goal of this project presentation is to raise awareness among our colleagues that the knowledge and skills needed for life in the 21st century are acquired from an early age and that most of those skills cannot be learned from a textbook.

The student-centred project activities presented in this talk will help the participants in preparing and delivering their lessons as well as in planning and designing their own everyday school activities gathered around the two main topics:

  • Cultural and intercultural awareness
  • European values of tolerance and equality

The participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the Erasmus+ programme in general.

  1. Ivana Bokavšek & Miranda Barac: London is always a great idea!

This workshop is intended to disseminate the results of the professional development course for Croatian teachers of English that was held in London in April 2022 and was organised by HUPE (Croatian Association of Teachers of English) with the support of AZOO (Education and Teacher Training Agency). The participants will be taken on a tour of London, enjoying its landmarks, and learning about its history and culture through various interactive activities. No matter how many times you've already been there, we hope that you will join us because London is always a great idea and an amazing city to explore!
