The Power of Lexis
Start Date: 6th November 2016
Available up to 3rd December 2016
On this course you are going to see that lexis is so much more than individual words. And as teachers you can focus on it in very different ways to help your learners develop their English from an aspect of grammar as well as vocabulary.
You will see that by teaching lexis well, you are in fact teaching grammar. The course is for teachers of all levels of experience.
Start Date: 4th December 2016
Scaffolded activities move learners beyond what they can currently do, into a Zone of Proximal Development (Vygotsky, 1978), where they can achieve more with guidance from others.
Once the scaffolding is removed, learners are able to perform autonomously with increased levels of confidence. This course integrates both theory and practice in reflective and collaborative conversation.
Video will be available soon.
Start Date: 9th January 2017
This course helps teachers to use mobile technology, such as phones and tablets, in a way that engages learners, helps them to become more autonomous, and personalises the learning experience.
The course will help you to create discrete, purposeful-usage slots in the lesson, transforming something that is not always thought to be ‘lesson-friendly’ into a powerful tool for language learning.
