SOS D.a.D. course

Are you a good teacher and would you like to express yourself better in online lessons too? Would you like to reinforce the knowledge acquired during the lockdown? Or prepare for the next competitions? We have the right solution to improve your online teaching skills! In the “SOS D.a.D.” course our most experienced teachers will share their know-how with you.

The course will be delivered completely online. Please note that like all of our online Teacher Training courses, this course is 100% live. Trainees and tutors are together as a group in real-time for the duration of the course.

SOS D.a.D. course programme

  • Session 1: Platform features

    In this session we will take a tour of the most important features of the platforms that participants are currently using. We will consolidate knowledge of them and practice using them in a peer-teaching format.

  • Session 2: Adapting teaching techniques to the online environment

    This session will look at ways to adapt what we normally do in class to the online environment. We will cover presenting, setting tasks and giving instructions, monitoring, classroom management, feedback, eliciting, error correction, supporting learners.

  • Session 3: Organisation, sharing & communication

    In this session we will explore different tools to help us organise our materials and share them with students in an effective way. We will also consider safeguarding and copyright issues.

  • Session 4: Online Engagement

    In this session participants will be guided through some EdTech apps that can boost student engagement. They will have the chance to set up accounts and practise using them with their peers.

  • Session 5: Flipped Classroom methodology

    This session will focus on using this approach in a variety of contexts. Participants will be offered hands-on experience of creating their own materials to be used in a flipped classroom.

  • Session 6: Review & troubleshooting

    In this last session we will deal with common problems associated with online teaching and attempt to find solutions based on the knowledge acquired during the course.

The course was well organized. Teachers were well prepared and most of all very patient. I really enjoyed it. It gave me tips on how to improve and implement my online teaching.

I had the chance to share experience with other colleagues and the trainers were well prepared to answer to our questions and to explain us all we need to know to teach in an on line lesson. 

I thank all the teachers of the SoS DAD course, I think the course was really good, we had enough time to go through all the issues we had. All the sessions were lively and pleasant, now it’s our turn to implement.

IH Milan & San Donato Teacher Training Blog

International House Journal

A publication by International House World Organization whose original intention was to provide a forum for debate, a platform for creating new ideas and re-floating old ones, debunking myths and generally generate a sense of adventure for people teaching TEFL or teaching English as a second language.

The IH Journal is designed to be readable but serious, though always with room to be lighthearted as well. IH World Organization is always on the lookout for new materials, ideas, papers, photos and articles. If you are a language teaching expert, teacher trainer or teacher from within the IH network or beyond and would like to contribute to the IH Journal, they would be delighted to hear from you.
