Teaching Practice and Observation
Teaching practice is a major component of the course and takes place every afternoon. The program is closely related to work done during the seminar sessions. Small groups (the maximum is six) obtain practical experience through working with classes at different levels. After each teaching practice session the lessons are discussed with the tutor. Trainees must liaise with other members of their group outside course hours in order to produce a series of cohesive lessons. The observation of practicing teachers is an intrinsic part of the course and takes place outside course hours.
We emphasize that this course is very intensive: it demands full commitment from participants throughout; 100% attendance is required.
