The module is moderated by an experienced online tutor who is also an experienced IELTS teacher. The lessons are released on a weekly basis, and you are expected to complete all the required tasks for each lesson within the week.
Collaborative tasks mean you work together with other online participants, and Discussion Forum tasks encourage you to explore some of the concepts discussed in more depth. Your tutor will play an active role in the Discussion Forums and provide help and guidance.
In addition, you will have classroom experiment tasks, which ask you to try out some of the ideas with your classes, and Reflective Journal tasks, where you analyse and explore the module contents with personalised, one-to-one support from your course tutor.
An active participation rate of 80% is a course requirement (active participation in Discussion forums and completion of required tasks).
As well as the online study notes, the module provides you with resources for teaching, and includes filmed teaching clips as well as interviews with teachers and students.
