Erasmus - Creative Methodology for Language Teachers

The Creative Methodology course covers approaches and methods (e.g. Task-Based learning, the Lexical Approach, Socio-Cultural Learning, Dogme / Teaching Unplugged) and classroom techniques that can lead to better learning outcomes. We will also explore how these methodologies can be applied in the technology-enhanced classroom.

As part of the course, participants will also have the opportunity to work on their own language development in sessions following the methodologies covered. This provides opportunities to experience and evaluate these methods from the perspective of both the teacher and the learner, and to consider how theory can be implemented in participants’ own practice and context.

The central objectives of the Creative Methodology for Language Teachers Course are:

  • to help teachers focus on professional practice and knowledge
  • to enhance trainees’ professional status, both within their teaching institutions and within the profession as a whole

Specific objectives include:

  • Fostering an in-depth awareness of current theory and practice in ELT, in terms of approaches to teaching, techniques and their practical applications.
  • Promoting peer collaboration and communities of best practice.
  • Encouraging experimentation and creativity in teaching methodology
