Work package 5: Preparing for the Teacher Training Course


Overall summary

The main aim of this work package was to design a teacher training course to be used to train language teachers in Second Life. We created a Moodle area for the course where we put up the syllabus and schedule for the course and the resources that would be useful for the tutors and the trainees enrolled on the course. In this workpackage we also prepared a report detailing all the stages of the preparation of the language teacher training course.

Moodle courseware

 

This courseware includes the six week schedule of the course, outlining the aims and objectives of each week's session, a variety of resources aimed to help the trainees and the tutors, a theoretical conceptualisation of teaching and learning in Second Life that created the basis for the design of the course content Second Life conceptualisation.doc , a discussion forum where teachers shared thoughts and experiences and other materials and resources that trainees could refer to when they need to after the course has ended.

Access to the Moodle site is through the guest login and is available to everyone.

In-world training space

 

This deliverable responds to creating a learning Island for the AVALON project to be used for all teaching and learning activity during and after the project. The Teacher Training Course also took place on AVALON Learning Island.

The AVALON Learning Island was created in the early stages of the project, was used throughout and will continue to be available for public access for language learning and teacher training.
