Key Information

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:

1 - YOUR TEACHERS

receive immediate training and support to learn to teach effectively  through a combination of asynchronous & synchronous tools

2 - YOUR INSTITUTION

develops a principled, robust long-term strategy to integrate online and blended learning as part of your broader learning offer.

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

Aqueduto

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.

Needs Analysis

TCE Directors Gavin Dudeney and/or Nicky Hockly will carry out an in-depth needs analysis for your institution and teachers. This consists of:

INSTITUTIONAL

A free virtual needs analysis / consultancy of 30-45 minutes with key staff members (director, manager, head teacher…)

PEDAGOGICAL

An online needs analysis for your teachers to identify their immediate online teaching needs

After your no-obligation needs analysis, choose from our live training sessions in Stage 2, or take the whole package and combine live training for your teachers with our strategic institutional package in Stage 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.

  • How to engage and motivate your learners in live online classes
  • How to use engaging activities, quizzes and games in your live online classes

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.

How can we help?

  • Managing the VLE

    Getting your school, your teachers and materials online in perfect harmony: principled, pedagogically-sound blended learning

  • Designing the Curriculum

    Helping you to combine offline and online, asynchronous and synchronous for the perfect, agile blend to keep you operating whatever the climate

  • Creating Teaching Materials

    Designing gorgeous, mobile-first e-learning experiences in Moodle, H5P and Articulate Rise

  • Training the Teachers

    Training your teachers to manage a VLE and your chosen synchronous tool to perfection, ensuring your online teaching and support is first class
