Course Introduction: Shadowing Project-based Learning

Participants take an active part in the delivery of our courses, and collaborate with our experienced teaching staff in the planning and delivery of a technology enhanced, project based language programme for our second level students. This includes being part of our teacher briefings before the classes start.

Aim: To shadow Future Learning teachers to see how they use project-based learning for English language teaching. This involves techniques for getting students to work together in teams of 3 to 4 on a series of tasks leading up to the production of a digital product, such as a video, which they present at the end.

Learner Profile

Learner Profile: Primary and Secondary Teachers seeking to learn new techniques that they can adapt in their own classroom at home. This shadowing opportunity is available to participants who:

  • are coming as part of a closed school group
  • have full police clearance and are shadowing another FL mini-stay group
  • are willing to shadow our project-based teaching methodology in our adult course

 

Learner Outcomes

By the end of the course, participants will have had practical experience of

  • planning for project-based learning (PBL) and adapting to resources and student needs
  • incorporating language outcomes into the project
  • setting a meaningful question or problem
  • selection of the end product for teams
  • classroom layout and team sizes
  • feedback and assessment for learning in PBL
  • drawbacks and challenges in implementing PBL
  • managing activities and deadlines
  • managing teamwork and fostering collaboration skills
  • creating a sense of project ownership and assigning roles
