Course Content (Syllabus)
Micro-teaching denotes a context in which a teaching situation has been reduced in scope and/or simplified in some systematic way. This course will familiarise student-trainees with the art of teaching by preparing micro-lessons, teaching the micro-class and adopting the reflective model through group discussions and keeping a teaching diary. The micro-lessons will be based on selected topics ranging from beginner to advanced learners. Peer-teaching is expected to give insights into learning problems by assuming the learners’ role. Some key issues related to classroom/time management, use of activities, use of visual aids as well as the quality of input/interaction, questioning techniques, management of feedback and promotion of more realistic use of language for communication will also be raised.
