This course aims at helping teachers develop skills to plan and manage projects in the ELT classroom.
It is a self-paced course to be taken on your own.
Each module will first outline the content and learning objectives, then it will develop the content and follow it up with a comprehension check in the form of a quiz. At the end, and in order to optimize the learning, there will be one or two tasks to do hands-on practice. At the end of each module you will also be asked to keep a journal where you write a short reflection on the usefulness of the specific content learnt and possible applications in your teaching and learning context. This journal can be on paper or digital.

Although this course can be taken individually, you can choose to take this course in groups of colleagues. Educational institutions may decide to have their teachers take this course together and set the pace to fit their specific needs. The reflection phase in each module could be organised as a face to face session to generate ideas for application in a more collaborative environment.
There is another version of this course which is tutored, which means full interaction and thorough feedback.
