For years now, TalkShop, a leading English communication consultancy, has been working closely with the Department of Education (DepEd), schools, and universities in line with its goal to promote excellence and innovation in education.
TalkShop CEO Sheila Viesca says, “The need for continuous education and self-development for our teachers and educators cannot be emphasized enough. On their shoulders lie the critical task of teaching and molding our youth that should not be limited within the classroom walls. Teaching skills should be updated and upgraded, for them to impart knowledge that is relevant, not only in the academe but also in the school of life.”
In store is an intensive program that integrates grammar mastery, communication expertise, personality development, accent training, presentation skills, and assertiveness training. With such programs, educators learn to think creatively, speak logically, and conduct themselves confidently.
“It is all about mastering one’s craft which in turn should help students broaden their dimensions of thinking and learning,” explains Viesca who has widened her teaching sphere from corporate workshops to being in the faculty of the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), where she teaches Research Writing to Development Management graduate students.
TalkShop’s Educator Program, enriched with learning tools is carried out using Integrated Language Teaching (ILT), an interactive, wholistic communicative approach Sheila Viesca pioneered in 2002.
