In this episode, we interviewed Anthony Gaughan. Anthony is a teacher trainer, blogger and teacher, and most known for developing an ‘unplugged’ CELTA course based on Dogme teaching principles. We discuss this interesting model of teacher training as well as Anthony’s background, his views on the resistance to more ‘reactive’ styles of teaching, and other topics.
