Teaching for Success: the Classroom and the World

British Council via FutureLearn

Overview

##

This free online course is for English language teachers around the world. It will help you develop the skills and practices you need for your continuing professional development (CPD).

This course is part of our Teaching for Success: Practices for English Language Teaching program. In the program we will look at the 12 professional practices for CPD on the British Council’s teacher development framework.

In this course you will look at four professional practices:

  • Integrating ICT
  • Promoting 21st-century skills
  • Using multilingual approaches
  • Understanding educational policies and practice.

Learn with English language teachers worldwide

Each week will focus on one of these practices. Short video interviews with experienced teachers will be combined with classroom films from around the world to illustrate the main points.

Video tutors, Suzanne and Claire, will guide you through each week’s content, offering tips, advice and downloadable resources at every stage.

You will be asked to share your own experiences and opinions as you become part of a global community of English language teachers discussing what leads to success.

The course draws on the British Council’s many years of expertise in teacher training and development around the world. It will be useful for teachers of English at primary, secondary or higher levels.

The course is aimed at teachers of English as a foreign language at all levels. Intermediate level English (around B1 on the CEFR) is required.

    By taking this online course I have learned about the new skills for 21st century learners.Students that think critically and enjoy problem solving.Young learners that learn collaboratively forming groups or teams that help and support one another being able to communicate effectively for achieving goals together.In doing so learners have to know how to use digital tools and make use of creativity and imagination.When these learners are adults they will have to apply what they learned to live in a similar way within a community.

I got more information about teaching my students and more about English and how to focus on the way of presenting. how to deal with errors. the importance of using different languages and the same one for the MT.

    the course is ideal for a teacher who has been kind of stagnating in the same profession for a very long time. It is an eye-opener for teachers who have been working without thinking about the objectives and the changing goals and perspectives.
