(Teachers attending the final workshop)
At the end of the five months, where each of the teacher groups developed their lesson in their respective school zones, the teachers were invited back to the University of Colombo where they attended the closing workshop.

Here, a presentation was made by Mrs. Jane Wentzel, a lesson study expert from the Fresno Unified school district and each group of teachers made presentation about their lessons and their collaborative experiences. Jane traveled all the way from California to Sri Lanka to attend the workshop as a resource person (on a voluntary basis). and this act was highly appreciated.
