Course description

This online course aims to provide new ideas and inspiration for English language teachers for activities and lesson planning.

We offer a chance to learn from our experienced trainers and guidance for participants to exchange their own ideas.

The course is aimed at teachers of English who want to energise their teaching and have an opportunity to learn from teachers in other countries with different experiences.

The approaches to teaching and learning will also be of interest to teachers of other languages as well as to native speaker teachers of English.

 

Objectives

The Online Creative Methodologies Programme focuses on practical teaching ideas and activities.

Because of the constraints of time, not all methodologies will be covered in detail. References however will be made to most of the latest methodologies. The focus of this course will be Task Based Learning and Learner Generated Teaching. Learner autonomy and independence will be promoted throughout the course.
The course will help participants to develop professionally by exploring their own experience and sharing ideas with like-minded teachers from other countries.

After the course, participants will be able to design lessons and activities that are motivating, challenging and effective.

 

Methodology

This online course is hands-on and interactive, enabling participants to be fully immersed in the subject matter.

Trainer-led sessions use the techniques and approaches being discussed so that the practical application of methods can be experienced within the programme. This is supported by in-depth discussion group work. Throughout the course, participants will be encouraged to experiment and think “outside the box“.

They will also receive:

  • Contact details of tutors and colleagues to facilitate ongoing development and exchange of ideas
  • A Feedback Questionnaire evaluating the course and ideas collected during the programme
  • A Bibliography of suggested further reading matter
