This week long, 56 hours credit-based capacity building programme will cover three modules: an introductory module on language learning theories and teacher education; a module on materials development, language pedagogy and assessment; and a module that will deal with issues around Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
It will provide hands-on experience of how teachers can be trained in learner-centred ESL pedagogy who will in turn teach ESL learners using a blended learning model. An important dimension will be to help participants to experience learner-centred pedagogies appropriate to the trainer-training context and to in turn enable them to adapt those pedagogies to the training context.
