English for teaching

Course description

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.

-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
