Course overview and purpose:
A hands-on, practical course for intermediate level teachers of English to experiment with different methodologies in order to maximise learner engagement and share best practice in ELT, this course aims to develop participants’ teaching methodology through participation using techniques that should be immediately applicable to their own teaching environments. The format consists of input sessions, followed by a cycle of peer teaching practice, feedback and reflection.
The learning objectives are:
-Planning lessons that support learners through controlled to free practice activities.
-Become more comfortable experimenting with different communicative teaching approaches and methodologies (PPP, TTT, TPR and TBL).
-Demonstrate increased awareness of phonology by including a focus on pronunciation in lesson planning
-Maximise engagement and respond to learner needs through learner centred, kinaesthetic activities.
-Engage with reflective practice through self, peer and tutor evaluation and include peer feedback in own teaching
Teachers of English and/or those required to deliver their subjects through the medium of English
