Would you like to take a free online course introducing ideas and methods for teaching English as a Second Language?
This 5 week course is offered by Coursera, a consortium of universities offering “MOOCs” (Massively Open Online Courses) taught in an innovative format.
The course starts on April 7, and requires about 4-5 hours of work per week which you can do on your own time schedule.
There are lectures and short assignments, as well as the opportunity to interact with others, and share ideas about teaching methods in an online forum with people from all over the world.
Students who successfully complete the class will receive a Statement of Accomplishment from the U.S. Department of State and the University of Oregon.
