Module overview

This module is for experienced teachers only (at least 2 years + teaching practice) as it draws extensively on students’ theoretical and practical knowledge of language teaching methodologies in specific national and institutional contexts with particular learner groups. The aim of this module is to give a detailed overview of different methods and approaches to language teaching, along with their theoretical underpinnings regarding language, learning, and pedagogy. We investigate a range of contemporary approaches to curriculum and syllabus design and their implications for language classrooms. Students will be familiarised with different ways to evaluate course-books and to design teaching material appropriate to specific learner groups and contexts.
