There are 25 seats available. The program begins with a three-day preparation session followed by five weeks of teaching practicum that combines face-to-face teaching in the classroom setting and on-line tutoring via our live classroom platform. There will also be a workshop on task-based instruction and a seminar on proficiency-based teaching. Training will be conducted through a variety of activities, such as classroom observation and discussion, teaching rehearsal, student-teaching, teaching discussion, etc. Participants draft lesson plans, discuss them with the lead teacher and fellow participants, rehearse the lessons, teach them in a real classroom, and discuss the teaching afterwards. Participants may choose to participate with no credit, or may choose to earn up to 6 graduate credits over the summer, and an additional 3 credits in the fall semester. For-credit participants are eligible to receive tuition scholarship support if they complete course requirements with outstanding performance.
