Abstract

Abstract: This Brief Paper gives an overview of how e-learning has helped non-graduate teachers of English living in big cities, and others living in rural areas which are hundreds of kilometres away from a city, in Chubut, Patagonia Argentina, to have access to teacher training courses. The use of a blended approach which comprises e-tivities as the axis of the course and face-to-face meetings as a complement, has paved the way for an effective learning process which resulted in added value to the participants’ classroom practices. It also shows how this approach has promoted a higher level of responsibility for learning by doing on the part of the students in a highly motivating and engaging environment – a dynamic interaction among learners and tutors.
