Registration is open from 15 March for the autumn semester, and from 15 September for the spring semester. For courses, registration closes at the end of April and at the end of October. You can register for seminars, workshops and coaching up to one week before the start of the activity.
The course develops the ability to teach in English. It links theoretical perspectives, approaches and concepts, such as English as a foreign language (EFL), English as a medium of instruction (EMI), English for specific purposes (ESP) and content and language integrated learning (CLIL) together with pedagogical methods and scaffolding for language learning strategies.
Common strategies are contrasted and compared, with a focus on developing your ability to effectively select and use multiple language strategies to facilitate instruction. This includes practical applications outlined in research and proven experience that can be used effectively as tools to increase the linguistic breadth and competence of both teachers and students. The course content contributes to transformative pedagogical practices directly related to student teaching and learning.
