Oxford Teachers’ Academy courses are suitable for teachers with an initial qualification and some teaching experience. Typically they provide 30 hours of core material spread over 8 sessions, with suggestions for further reading and interesting websites, videos, and blogs for each topic.

Participants have 12 months to access the course content on their computers anytime, anywhere with access to the internet. That means they can fit their study around teaching commitments, at a pace to suit their own learning style.

Session aims and topics have been mapped onto the EAQUALS Framework of Language Teacher Training and Development.

The structure of the session specifically facilitates self-study and helps all participants stay engaged through a media-rich, interactive learning experience, encouraging reflection, and providing suggestions of possible answers and solutions. Participants can also contribute to and create discussions and chat with other teachers taking the same course.

The courses are full of innovative ideas, approaches and theories. They offer plenty of food for thought, including chapters from Professional Development and Applied Linguistics books, video interviews with experts, and links to academic journals. To fully benefit from this rich resource, we recommend English proficiency level of at least B2 on the CEFR.

Self-study option
Individual teachers can do the course in a self-study option. They will join a community of teachers from around the world taking the course at the same time. Participants can study at their own pace, time and place, they can contribute to course discussions and set up discussions of their own. They can also message each other and use the chat room tool. Teachers can either purchase the Participant Online Code for each course online, or a Participant Code Card from their local bookshop.

Moderated option (for institutions)
Institutions can set up moderated courses for closed groups of participants led by a teacher trainer or supervisor. The role of the moderator is to monitor the progress of the group in the Learning Management System, follow the user gradebook, coordinate, create, and facilitate discussions and chats. They also ensure that the Evidence of Learning Journals have been fully completed in accordance with the Evaluation Criteria. For the moderated option of the course institutions need to purchase a Moderator Code Card from their local bookshop.

Отзывы

Very interesting, involving, motivational, thought-provoking. I love the way we don’t get bored because we do a task, which is also an introduction to a new topic, and then we test ourselves on the subject. I feel very stimulated to finish this.
Lia Guimarães, Brazil

The course gives me the opportunity to revise what I learnt at university and during some training courses. It helps me think about my teaching methodology in class.
Roberta Reniero, Italy

The course is a great opportunity to revise and summarise what you know, and to check if you are aware of the latest pedagogical, methodological and psychological approaches.
Marina Balina, Russia

I found the Evidence of Learning tasks absolutely realistic. The tasks are thought-provoking, encouraging, motivating and useful, making the teachers reflect continuously on their own practice.
Katalin Riffel, Hungary

The materials from books and journals are very useful and provide a great chance to enhance my knowledge about the subject.
Carlos Javier Ojeda Castro, Mexico
