In 2003 I ran a materials writing seminar for police teachers from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. In one week they learnt how to write text-based materials, work in co-operative writing teams and produced twenty two units of English for Specific Purposes materials for their police students.

The team were Dzintra Ābol, Galina Afenko, Epp Leibur, Jake McClure, Külli Saluste, Ewa Zabiegly, Iraida Vlasova and Žanna Hansone.
