Joanne Williams

Adjunct Faculty, Bachelor of Education

In the fall 2012 Joanne Williams was involved in teaching curriculum pedagogy to primary and secondary English teachers in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The English training took place in the country’s capital city of Pyongyang at the Pyongyang Computer and English Refreshment Center (PCERC). In the DPRK, English is a compulsory subject for middle school to university level students and since 2008, this collaboration has allowed 450 DPRK teachers to engage in conversation with native English speakers.
