Getting Creative with Resources ONLINE COURSE

Online Courses

This is a course for English language teachers who want to develop their ability to both find and create engaging materials for classroom use.
Over the 2 weeks, you will be working on collaborative tasks with your peers and sharing good practice, with guidance and support from your online tutor. Sourcing teaching materials can be very time-consuming, so we will look at how to exploit authentic materials, saving on planning time and exposing your learners to real-world language.

Exploit authentic materials effectively

Develop your own adaptable toolkit of resources

Design your own materials to engage students

Whether you work with a course book, follow a curriculum or design your own materials, ensuring that your resources are current, relevant and engaging is going to maximise their effectiveness. Sourcing teaching materials can be very time-consuming, so we will look at how to exploit authentic materials, saving on planning time and exposing your learners to real-world language. We will also look at how to create materials from scratch and build up a bank of templates for adaptable, low-prep and engaging activities that you can rely on time and time again.

Weekly Modules
Module 1 – Familiarisation with the online platform, Moodle
– Evaluating materials
– Sourcing and exploiting authentic materials for language development
Module 2 – Creating materials from scratch
– Adaptable, low-prep activities
– Conclusions

Each module should take about 5 hours. You can study at a time convenient for you, but each module must be completed by the specified deadline.

There will be a variety of tasks to complete. Collaboration is a key part of the course, although this doesn’t mean you have to be online at the same time as your peers. However, it’s important you keep to the task deadlines to enable everyone to complete the necessary work. At the end of each module there will be an online live chat session, timetabled for a day and time that suits the majority. For those that are unable to attend the live session, it will be recorded and uploaded to the site.
