Teaching in English will strengthen and broaden the teaching and language skills of the participants for the purposes of creating, organizing and leading classes though the medium of English. Participants will explore the role of the teacher, the role of the student, and how to create curriculum, assignments, and discussions that challenge the student but nonetheless support the learning process.
In the first workshop, Strong Starters in International Classrooms, the use of the Syllabus in international classrooms will be evaluated. Typical goal setting and planning strategies from the American university system (often used in international settings) will be presented, along with language tips for clear communication skills. This class will emphasize and practice the essential tasks when planning and starting a semester.
In the second workshop, Speaking in the Moment (Presenting, Discussing, and Questioning), the teaching tools and necessary language for time spent during class will be emphasized. For example, the advantages and disadvantages of discussions for both the teacher and the student will be evaluated. A broad overview of presentation skills along with creating questions that promote advanced critical thinking skills (Bloom’s Taxonomy) will be considered. Additionally, typical phrases and planning for chairing student-centered discussions will be discussed.
In the third workshop, Guidance for Academic Writing (Instructions, Feedback, and Evaluations), the participants will be asked to consider a journey into unknown places as an analogy to a typical class. Through this analogy, the tools to guide students to the "correct" location, through instructions and feedback (teacher to peer, peer to peer, and self-assessment), will be considered. Additionally, typical evaluation tools used by the American university system (Rubrics) will be evaluated.
