Advanced Skills Courses Live in 2020

Create your own future with iTDi online courses.

Registration is now open for these exciting live courses in 2020:

Dogme ELT

Dogme ELT
with Scott Thornbury

Starts September 6th

‘Dogme language teaching is considered to be both a methodology and a movement‘ (Wikipedia). Alternatively, according to Keith Johnson (An Introduction to Foreign Language Learning and Teaching, 2008) it ‘is not an approach, but a mindset’. Johnson also describes its co-founder, Scott Thornbury, as ‘a main mover and shaker in foreign language teaching’. This course is for teachers who want to learn more about this method, movement or mindset, from the mover and shaker who first conceived it.

 

Self Publishing

Self-Publishing for ELT Professionals 2020
with Dorothy Zemach

Starts July 5th.

This advanced course is for those who have written materials that they wish to turn into a published book, either for personal use or to sell on commercial platforms. We’ll look primarily at creating ebooks, but will also discuss print-on-demand paperbacks.

Sorry you missed this great live course. It will be back in a new format later in the year.

Task-Based Language Teaching

Task-Based Language Teaching: Instruction, Assessment, and Course Design
with Marcos Benevides

Starts March 1st.

This advanced course provides an introduction to task-based language teaching (TBLT) aimed at teachers and course designers. Teachers will gain a clear and practical understanding of the approach.

 

Sorry you missed this great live course. It will be available as a self-study course shortly.

More iTDi Advanced Skills courses are scheduled for later in the year. Check regularly for updates or subscribe to our Newsletter

 

About iTDi Advanced Skills live courses

Challenge your beliefs about teaching, acquire new skills, and learn with some of the best teachers in ELT by taking a four-week iTDi Advanced Skills Course. Every year we offer a range of courses on topics, areas, and issues you'll want to explore more deeply. Each course is led by a content area expert and includes:

  • four live one-hour sessions in the iTDi online global classroom
  • course-exclusive texts, multimedia components, and study materials
  • access to a dedicated course forum practice circle where you'll discuss course content, interact with your instructor and classmates, post assignments, and share ideas
  • small classes to encourage interaction and provide personal attention
  • support and mentoring from iTDi
  • an International Teacher Development Institute (iTDi) endorsed Certificate of Completion, recording 20 professional development hours

All classes are recorded, so don't worry if you miss one. Following each class, registered participants are emailed a link to playback the recording at leisure. We also send out mini-assignments and readings by email. Participants are encouraged to engage in the online forum discussions between classes, and the tutors will be available to answer any questions arising from the course.

 

Take your learning further with an iTDi Certificate of Accomplishment or Distinction!

Most courses also offer a Certificate of Accomplishment to help you to push your development further. Demonstrate the skills and knowledge you acquired in a course by doing additional course-specific assignments and having your work evaluated to fulfill the requirements for an optional Certificate of Accomplishment signed by the course instructor and endorsed by iTDi. This post-class work and evaluation is available for an additional fee, and will provide you with documentation to show what you have learned, and the number of professional development hours earned. Where offered, the Certificate of Distinction adds one-to-one mentoring sessions from the course instructor.
