Let’s get learners motivated.

In an increasingly digital world, more and more of our students are growing up with technology. So this should make teaching online easy, right?

Not necessarily. Online teaching presents a fantastic opportunity for teaching English online – offering new capabilities and up to date materials and features that can be integrated into course delivery – as long as we effectively harness the interests and motivation of our students.

This course is part of the “Teaching English online and using educational technology” specialism course series, expertly designed to support teachers to deliver dynamic, active and interactive online experiences that are conducive to better language learning.
