Practical, Possible and Painless: strategies for the English Classroom (2nd Edition)

The main aim of this eCourse is to facilitate a fresh new perspective towards the 21st century classroom. Throughout each module participants will find theory and practice intertwined in order to build a strong understanding of the best resources and strategies for second and third cycle learners.

Mentoring in Educational Contexts · CFECO Edition

Mentoring has been around for a long time and we all think we know what it is. However, over the years, mentoring has developed into a significant field of study with multiple applications in education.

In our course we will have the opportunity to discuss ideas around what mentoring is, or isn't. We will discuss and compare mentoring to other models of helping relationships we may also find in education (tutoring, coaching, teaching, counselling). 

Whether or not you are actively involved in a mentoring programme in your school, this course will prepare you to confidently contribute in already running programmes as well as setting up your own projects in your own context.

I do not intend to give ideas of "ready made" ideas, or tell you what you should or shouldn't do, but rather to build your confidence and awareness to enable you to further develop your own ideas and think about wider applications for mentoring in educational contexts.

Important note:

ASYNCHRONOUS WORK — the course contains a discussion forum which runs each week after class, which requires participation on the weekend. You may have 1 hour of other reading or research, and 1 hour (spread over Saturday and Sunday) to interact with each other. The forum discussion ends two days before the next class. 

(Remember, if the course were face-to-face, there would probably be a class on the weekend).

Oral and written production in the English Class with Digital Technologies

The main goal of this course is to develop teachers' Digital Competence. We will develop research skills for new digital tools and their usefulness for language learning. We will get to know different digital tools and develop skills in their use. Throughout the course, we will plan and implement activities using digital tools to promote students' communicative competence, particularly oral and written production, and that can also promote the creation of digital content by students. Sharing and reflection among trainees will be a strong component of this course.

Spice up your students' speaking skills

Break the silence and spice up your students’ speaking skills. In this course we will have the opportunity to share a series of practical ideas and methodologies on how to raise your students’ interests to learn and play with the language while exploring their innate ability to acquire linguistic structures. Throughout the sessions, we will also create activities to engage the 21st century student while promoting their communicative competence.
