The Methodologies Behind the Madness
Mondays - 6pm to 9pm/ Fridays 9am to 12pm
What is the course about?
Why do we teach the way we teach? Is it an approach or a methodology? Is translation and L1 in the classroom always a bad thing?
Over the course of January, we intend to show teachers the benefits and drawbacks of using different methodologies in their practice. We will present, teach, discuss, and ask teachers to develop hands-on tasks based on eight different methodologies.
This is a 27-hour course divided into nine three-hour sessions that will be taught as:
Learning Theories & Terminology
The Audiolingual Method
Total Physical Response
The Lexical Approach
Dogme/ Teaching Unplugged
Task-based Language Teaching
Community Language Learning
The Silent Way
