Let’s learn about linguistic mediation.
Mediation is something we do all the time when we use language, and yet, it has been largely omitted from the English language syllabus and not taught – until recently. Following the recent publication of the revised CEFR, education ministries are requiring syllabuses to include mediation.
National and international English language exams are now also including mediation, major publishers are including mediation in their course books and/or supplementary materials, and schools are adding it to their syllabus.
But what exactly is linguistic mediation? This course is part of the “Teaching through the lens of mediation” online course series, expertly designed to support teachers who would like to learn or refresh their understanding of the topic.
Each course we run is tailored by our expert tutors to the professional needs and priorities of the participants so content may be adapted to best suit the needs of your group.
Our approach draws on the best available evidence on how teachers learn for transferability and impact. Throughout each component of your course, you will receive ongoing tutor facilitation and feedback.
1. Awareness raisingDevelop your understanding through online tasks, moderated forum discussions and interactive videos.
2. Consolidation and reinforcementGain useful insights from a one-hour live webinar with an expert tutor to build on and develop a deeper understanding of course content.
