Course Description

This flexible programme has been developed for teachers and other TESOL professionals, such as educational administrators, inspectors, materials or curriculum developers, assessment specialists and policy makers, as well as those planning to undertake doctoral study in TESOL or applied linguistics.

The programme particularly values the professional experience that participants bring to the course. It provides a learning context in which you can reflect on: your professional practice; the policies and diverse contextual factors that frame it; the theoretical frameworks that inform it; the research that exists or could be conducted to substantiate or refute intuitive judgments.
