Course "Lecturing in English: Teaching vs Learning"
Lecturing in English demands specific knowledge and skills from tutors. While preparing for lectures, tutors very often put an emphasis on planning their participation in learning and forget about student involvement and learning outcomes. However, learning in English is much more challenging for non-native speakers. Hence, it is highly important for tutors not only to plan lecture content and workshop topics but also keep in mind language, the structure of the material, ways of introducing terminology, and student involvement. Besides linguistic difficulties associated with running lectures and workshops in English, the course will cover pedagogical strategies that can enhance learning efficiency.

She is a Cambridge Delta qualified EFL teacher with broad experience in teaching academic writing and speaking to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as academics.
