APAC Online Teacher Development Courses July 2021

APAC (Associació de Professorat d’Anglès de Catalunya) are running four 100% online teacher development courses this July. They will cover a range of topics and one of them will be presented by me! I will be running a 30-hour course from 5th-9th July entitled “Exploring Methodologies and Lesson Frameworks”, here’s my blurb:

“This course will compare and contrast a range of different methodologies and approaches including task-based learning, the lexical approach and many more practical and applicable tools and techniques. Trainees will develop their understanding of several lesson frameworks that can be adapted for use in their own teaching contexts. They will put their knowledge into practice by developing their own lesson plans and materials throughout the course.”

If that topic doesn’t float your boat, there are 3 more courses on offer:

A Hands-On Introduction to Project-Based Learning, with Cèlia Esquerra

In this hands on course you will learn about the fundamentals of project based learning: origin, elements and characteristics. At the same time, you will learn how to design, implement and assess a project while creating your own project.

Aimed at: Secondary School and Language School teachers

Dates: 12-16 July 2021

Tackling Troubles in the ELT Classroom, with Colin Young

The course empowers English teachers to become language facilitators by providing real solutions to working in a diverse classroom.  

Hands-on practice of differentiated learning, pronunciation improvement tools, and questioning techniques will allow language facilitators to create a supportive learning environment where students and teachers develop the confidence to communicate clearly.

Additionally, teachers will make progress in their own personal language skills by gaining awareness, practice and a solid understanding of their ‘language gaps’.

Aimed at: Primary and Secondary School, and Language School teachers

Dates: 12-16 July 2021

Emotional Intelligence: Mindfulness for teachers and students, with Emma Reynolds

This course will bring together the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course for adults with practices for students that teachers can use in the classroom. We will learn experientially about how to become more focused with our attention, work with difficult thoughts and emotions through meditations, mindful movement and more.

Aimed at: Primary and Secondary School, and Language School teachers

Dates: 5-9 July 2021
