TESOL Advanced Online

Sprott Shaw College’s TESOL Advanced Online program is dedicated to preparing our student-teachers for teaching in classrooms both at home and abroad. This course covers the four main skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), as well as the key systems (lexis, phonology, grammar and function) inherent in language teaching. Students will gain in-depth knowledge of the modern classroom and the techniques and skills needed to facilitate learning; from eliciting and asking concept check questions to reducing teacher talk time and increasing student centered learning. Our program is full of practical teaching tips. TESOL Advanced Online, with the completion of an approved practicum, has been approved by TESL Canada, bringing graduates of this course one step closer to attaining TESL Canada certification.

At the end of this program the successful student will have reliably demonstrated the ability to:
– Apply a solid linguistic and pedagogical base to classroom teaching
– Manage a variety of classroom scenarios effectively
– Communicate effectively with students from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds
– Develop and create interesting and meaningful teaching materials
– Plan effective lessons
– Develop instruction techniques for all skills and systems
– Apply an inductive, student centered teaching style
– Build skills and confidence through a wide range of practice tasks
– Evaluate and assess student performance

As TESOL Advanced Online is a distance course all of the online module hours (110) are homework hours to be completed at the students own pace within 26 weeks. The practicum module
(20 hours) is to be completed within 2 weeks. It includes 10 hours of observation and 10 hours of supervised teaching.
