Suggested Reading List for When You Have Some Free Time

Hello world!

In one of my previous posts (Keep Smiling) I mentioned that I was taking a Masters’ Course in International Education. I also mentioned that I spent most of this summer in Madrid, Spain taking the on-campus course. In one of the most outstanding courses (Innovative Practices) I had a great opportunity to learn from professionals. The class was filled with joy, positive energy and sense of professionalism. During our last session we were given a number of tips for our further professional development. This is one of the reasons I loved that course so much. I’m a life-long learner, I just can’t stay away from the opportunities to learn.

So, why am I writing all this? This post is dedicated to the books we were recommended to read. i felt the necessity to share it with the folks out there. Hopefully, it will be useful to somebody who is like me in search of interesting reads!
