The 3 courses that we are offering recognise the ever increasing role of the teacher as an expert in the design of contemporary teaching resources through innovative teaching methodologies.  All these different roles are having a significant change in the function of the teacher.

As educators we need to make a shift from traditional teaching and traditional pedagogical approaches to a 21st century learning environment. We are interconnected in a technology-driven world which has widened the learning place to the virtual, on-line, remote and anytime conditions. We need to reshape pedagogies since current literacies are mainly brought to us through the digital environment. These course outline these issues and helps teachers prepare to adapt to the new role as experts in the design of learning experiences.

Teaching  Through Coding, Robotics and Tablets 

Computational thinking skills and the use of new technologies are becoming ever more important in our society and working life. Research shows that learning to code develops various skills such as problem-solving, logical reasoning and creativity. Programming encourages students to practice logical thinking, analysis, spatial reasoning, making connections, and using the trial-and-error method for problem solving.
Throughout the course, participants will have time to reflect on how the tools and practices being introduced can be embedded successfully in their classroom.

Teaching Languages Creatively

Language teachers have an extremely important role in every education institution. They are responsible for a number of skills human beings cannot live without in a world dependent on social interaction and most importantly the literacy skills and the communicative ability achieved through speech and writing.  

The course being organised targets language teachers whose teaching may include primary and secondary school (students aged from 5 to 18 years). 

The main aim of the course is to challenge some of the existing teaching methodologies and review how the existing teaching tools may be repackaged to allow for more flexibility in such diverse teaching contexts most European teachers are currently engaged in. It encourages a creative approach to teaching languages.

Whether you are working towards introducing a bilingual language policy in your school or are already teaching in a bilingual or multilingual context, or are teaching a foreign language to immigrant students/communities, or simply wish to experiment with a different approach, this course caters for such a mix.

The sessions will engage teachers in a variety of pedagogical tools and the main foci will include Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), Digital Technology for Language Teaching and Learning and Corpus-based Teaching Tools. These dominant topics will encompass the functional approaches to language teaching through both Communicative Language Teaching and the Silent Way, thus involving reference to current trends such as the Present, Practice and Perform model and Task-Based Learning among others.
