    Free Course on Teaching Young Learners Online

    Join the Free Course on Teaching Young Learners Online.

    Work together to plan, create, and facilitate inclusive online learning that engages and inspires young people aged 5 to 17.

    Many teachers have recently found themselves having to adapt quickly to dramatically different teaching contexts in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in widespread school, college, and university closures.

    On this course from the British Council, you’ll explore online teaching in both theory and practice – how to plan accessible online lessons and assessments, what online safety looks like, and how best to build relationships with young learners.

    You’ll come away understanding how to include and engage learners online, both in synchronous and asynchronous environments.

    Who is the course for?

    This course is for English language teachers, teaching young learners (5-17) in an online environment. Experience of teaching in online contexts is not essential and both experienced and novice online teachers will benefit.

    While most of the context is based around English language learning, teachers of other subjects will also find the course valuable, as the principles of English language lesson planning apply to online teaching in general.

    What topics will you cover?

    • Week 1: Meaningful interaction
      Creating the best conditions for your learners to interact meaningfully and learn together online
    • Week 2: Engagement, content and differentiation
      Tailoring your online teaching to your learners’ needs, to ensure your classes are inclusive and enjoyable
    • Week 3: Practice, assessment and progress
      Helping learners develop their speaking and writing skills, and using assessment for learning to make learners and their parents aware of their progress

    What will you achieve?

    By the end of the course, you‘ll be able to

    • Identify how to build relationships with learners, between learners and with parents, and be present and supportive when teaching online
    • Understand privacy and safety issues online and how to help learners and parents think critically about online risks and behavior
    • Apply principles of English language lesson planning to online teaching
    • Apply and practice how to manage online interactions effectively
    • Know how to include and engage learners online both in synchronous and asynchronous environments
    • Evaluate the opportunities and challenges associated with different tools and modes of online teaching and learning
    • Develop and share techniques for language and skills teaching and assessment online
