Teacher Professional Development for EFL - EDPJ5023

Year - 2020

In this unit students identify the needs of language teachers in pre-service and in-service courses and explore different models of teacher development. In the light of these models, participants consider ways of leading teachers to a fuller appreciation of language teaching goals, methods and activities. With a focus on experiential learning, prior knowledge and classroom interaction, participants have the opportunity to view, design and conduct workshop sessions on a range of topics and in different modes to meet particular goals and to provide self and peer critique on these training sessions.
