Objectives


Courses are designed to provide professors of content courses the tools needed to teach in their respective areas in English. All pedagogy courses are given at a B1 and higher level (TOEFL>500) and will include methods, materials, techniques, and strategies that apply to curriculum, assessment, and instruction. Skill development courses are also given at a B1 and higher level and include limited pedagogical discussion.

Delivery


The delivery of this course includes both face-to-face and online interactions as well as synchronous and asynchronous forms of communication, applying a connectivist learning theory that centers around personal learning networks (PLNs). Most content and interaction with this content can be found in this Wikispace. However, UAA professors will also be using their Office 365 account (Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Yammer, OneDrive, and Sway) as well. YouTube and Internet Archive will be the main video hosting sites that will be embedded within this Wikispace.

Time Investment

It is important to realize that all courses are blended courses, meaning that there is a face to face component to each course as well as work required outside of class each week. Plan on investing the same amount of time spent in class as you will outside of class.
