English & Methodology for TESOL Purposes (EMTP)

Why EMTP online?

The English & Methodology for TESOL Purposes (EMTP) program is designed specifically for primary and secondary teachers of English who have a language background other than English.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience ‘active learning’ in a live online environment. ICTE teacher trainers will model effective online teaching techniques and strategies, using an interactive methodology and contemporary online learning tools.

Participants will develop new skills for engaging with their students and enhancing learning in face-to-face and online classroom contexts.

The ICTE EMTP live online program helps participants to:

  • adapt and utilise English language learning tasks to facilitate active learning
  • share teaching materials with colleagues and reflect on task design for active learning using online tools for interactive, educational purposes
  • evaluate and reflect on the effectiveness of these tools and strategies for live online and face-to-face teaching
  • develop English fluency in speaking and listening skills through interactive, online learning.

EMTP participants receive the equivalent of 20 hours of tuition per week, including individual and small group feedback, led by highly qualified and experienced teacher-trainers.

The program is designed to develop participants’ communicative competence in English and teaching skills for primary and secondary in both face-to-face and online TESOL contexts.

To achieve this, participants will:

  • learn from demonstrations by experienced teacher-trainers with participants talking, listening, thinking and reflecting on teaching and learning* in an interactive live online environment
  • analyse, evaluate and adapt textbooks and other teaching materials
  • learn, apply and practise new techniques to facilitate active learning
  • use synchronous and asynchronous learning tools
  • share teaching ideas and receive meaningful feedback from peers and experienced trainers.
