LOTT – Localized Online Teacher Training

June, 2020: English Language Teachers’ Association of Rajanna Sircilla District and Bharti Foundation, together, have designed a series of interactive workshops for the betterment of English Language Teachers of the district. These workshops are organized on online video conferencing applications.
