In this course you will learn what kinds of activities help students to learn English well. There are eight units. In this taster, you have access to the Orientation Unit and Unit 5 so that you get get an idea of what a Nile Online course might involve. In the first one you will get to know the course, the learning platform, your tutors and the other participants. In the next six units you will explore some factors we need to consider when choosing, using and adapting activities, such as interaction, motivation and classroom management.
We will also look at how to evaluate activities and adapt them or devise our own when necessary. Each of these units will also focus on activities related to a particular language area. Over the course you will build up a repertoire, or bank, of activities that you can use with your students and we will help you to organise and share this. In unit 8 you will prepare for your final assignment which will help you put everything you have learnt into practice.
