LN5906: TESOL FOCUSSED TEACHING PORTFOLIO (2016-2017)

Last modified: 16 Nov 2016 18:10


Course Overview

This course leads to the production of a portfolio of reflective and informed pieces analysing both the student’s own and others’ teaching practice in line with what has been learned throughout the programme.  Students will gain hands-on teaching practice under the supervision of highly qualified personnel; the experience will then be analysed and related to relevant theory and methodology. Students will gain a sense of what planning and executing a programme of TESOL teaching will involve. This portfolio is a unique feature of the Aberdeen MSc in TESOL and gives a strongly practical flavour to the degree as a whole.
