Content

The TESOL with a Specialism in Technology for Teaching course gives students with an interest in this field the opportunity to integrate the theory and practice of teaching English to speakers of other languages, with a particular focus on technology for teaching.

The course is aimed at students who want to develop the pedagogical knowledge that underpins the application of technology in language classrooms. This is a transdisciplinary course drawing on sources from a variety of fields (including education, psychology, sociology, design, ludology, linguistics and philosophy).

As part of this course, you will develop technical skills in a range of applications, such as data-driven learning, task-based learning and game-based learning. You will also develop project management skills, using techniques from agile design and design thinking.

You can exit this course at earlier stages with PgCert TESOL or PgDip TESOL.
