Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and ICT MA

Overview

This programme equips you to use ICT to develop TESOL materials or deliver teaching.

You’ll discover e-learning first-hand through exposure to online learning and teaching methods, and gain practical experience of using ICT to develop learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. 

You’ll explore how people learn languages and examine language teaching strategies. Though you study the same core modules as students on other TESOL programmes, you’ll choose from optional modules that focus on the use of ICT in TESOL. 

Taught by expert practitioners and researchers, MA TESOL and ICT will give you the skills and confidence to use ICT as a key asset in the classroom and has been designed for teachers, teacher trainers, language school directors, curriculum developers, inspectors, lecturers and materials writers.

Please be aware that this is not an IT skills training course, and we will expect you to have basic IT skills such as word processing, email and using the internet before you start the programme.

Course content

In semester one, you’ll deepen your understanding of TESOL. You’ll focus on how people learn languages, how to describe and explain language to learners and the approaches you can take to teaching reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.

You’ll then expand your knowledge in semester two. You’ll choose from a range of optional modules that focus on the use of technology in language learning, covering topics such as digital learning environments, gamification, the factors affecting staff and student technology adoption, making digital materials and the theoretical basis of technology-enhanced language learning.

Throughout the year, you’ll use the knowledge and skills you gain to carry out a small-scale piece of research related to your own interests within education. You’ll submit this dissertation by the end of the year.

If you choose to study part-time, you’ll study over a longer period and take fewer modules in each year.

However, independent study is an important aspect of this programme, either alone or in a group, as it allows you to develop key research, analysis and communication skills and develop your own ideas.
