Our new support and training packages help institutions move into online & blended learning by combining first-class needs analysis with live virtual training and a long-term business-wide strategy for developing a robust, pedagogically sound and economically viable future-proof model. After a free needs analysis session, our two-phase approach ensures that:
From Surviving to Thriving Online
At TCE, we provide the support that your institution and your teachers need to successfully transition into effective online teaching.
Offering well-designed online courses is an essential part of future-proofing for any educational institution. It enables institutions to continue to offer quality teaching and learning during health crises, and also in times of environmental challenges or political uncertainty. The educational institutions that will succeed in the longer-term are those that are best prepared for online and blended teaching and learning
As a founding member of AQUEDUTO, we ensure that our approach to online teaching and development is informed by the AQUEDUTO Quality Assurance Framework which works on three key domains to ensure the online experience is well-rounded and works across an institution in every stakeholder group.
As Easy as 1 - 2- 3
TCE Directors Gavin Dudeney and/or Nicky Hockly will carry out an in-depth needs analysis for your institution and teachers. This consists of:
After your no-obligation needs analysis, choose from our live training sessions in Step 2, or take the whole package and combine live training for your teachers with our strategic institutional package in Step 3 to future-proof your entire teaching operation.
Live Training Sessions (Webinars)
TCE’s highly experience online tutors and Directors offer one-hour ‘how to’ live training sessions / webinars for your teachers. Live training sessions can be chosen from the following list, or tailor-made live training sessions can be developed for your teachers.
Optional: Virtual Mentoring
You can combine the live training sessions with follow-up virtual mentoring for your teachers. Virtual mentoring ensures that the concepts, ideas and activities explored in the live training sessions become embedded in your teachers’ online teaching practice over time. This reflects an ongoing, supported and sustainable approach to training and CPD. Teacher reflection is aided by weekly, bi-weekly or monthly group virtual mentoring sessions of one hour each, led by a TCE trainer. The regular virtual mentoring sessions support collaboration between teachers, and prioritise guided reflection and feedback on their online teaching practice. Virtual mentoring can also include observation of recordings of your teachers’ live online classes, and formative and/or summative assessment of teaching practices.
Future-Proofing Your Business
The future of language teaching is at best uncertain, but we can prepare for an uncertain future by taking steps to train our teachers, and put in place structures and technologies which will allow us to transition from face-to-face teaching to online teaching and back again as the situation demands. Being able to fluidly transition our business model will keep us agile, and ready for future challenges.
The school of the future will leverage asynchronous tools (such as a virtual learning environment or VLE, e.g. Moodle) with synchronous tools (e.g. Zoom) to offer a complete package to learners, wherever they may be.
