Living in the  21st century means being part of a globalised  world. So, what is our role as teachers of English? Which new skills do we need to acquire? What is the profile of the 21st century student? These and other questions will be raised at the beginning of the course and will be the springboard for future debate along the course.


To help students develop the four skills in learning English is part of our role as teachers. But how can we do it effectively? Techniques and strategies for teaching and learning will be reviewed to provide alternatives for the teacher to choose the ones that best suit their needs and work environment.


CLIL refers to situations where subjects are taught through a foreign language with dual objectives, learning context and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language, in this case English.
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is not a new concept but it has come back again due to its effectiveness. David Gradol said once that “CLIL works. However, the difficult thing is to exploit it correctly.”
The module will present information and provide resources to meet the challenge.


Just as the student needs to acquire and develop skills that will enhance their learning, teachers must also acquire skills that will enable them to meet the goals established, within the humanistic approach. Topics such as classroom management, leadership, motivational skills will be reviewed in the module.

As teachers we never cease to look not only for the latest methodological trends, but also for the mastery of the language used. This module will review the importance of keeping a good level of English and of exploiting  the resources.


In a globalised society some negative issues can affect the proper development of classes, indiscipline and  poor school performance are two examples of these, but there are other issues that are being ignored and t are a major current threat. Do we know what to do or how to spot bullying? What to do with students with different abilities? Do we know how to manage them?


Preparing our lessons is part of our work at schools, therefore, improving them will guarantee the effectiveness of our teaching.  This will give us the necessary time to monitor and identify our students personal needs as well as their motivation drive towards learning. Throughout the module, we will review some concepts in planning our classes by implementing  better time management in the classroom. In addition to that, we will also have the chance to reflect on our work based on our students performance.


Through the module we will explore the various types of evaluation and their objectives. How do we move from a standard evaluation assessment  to a personalised one? What grading tools can be applied in the classroom? These and other aspects will be addressed so that participants can then apply the assessment and monitoring of students according to the needs of their own scenarios.

[ELTeCS_PERU] 2nd TDC in Cuzco‏

Dear colleagues

On Oct 26th and 27th, ICPNA Cuzco and SBS organized the Second Teaching Development Conference which gathered people from areas such as Ayacucho, Arequipa, Cuzco, Puno, Lima, Juliaca and Puerto Maldonado. The event offered 4 Plenaries and 15 workshops which were repeated in three schedules to provide all teachers with opportunities to attend as many as possible. As it has been happening lately, the number of workshops that deal with Technology is increasing, there were 6 workshops based on Wikis, Movie-making, Kindles and Walls, Online tools and Teaching and Technology, this shows the increasing importance that the use of technology has in our daily teaching practice and it was really comforting to see so many teachers eager to learn how to integrate Technology in their classes.

However, it is important not to lose sight of the training in competencies for life for ourselves and for our students; abilities such as time-management, problem solving, self-confidence or communication skills can certainly make a difference. Follow this link , go to Events and download the handout of Interpersonal Skills aiming at Developing Competences for Life. You can also watch the video with the photos.

The welcoming atmosphere, participants' enthusiasm and interest made up for the inconveniences of struggling for air and coping with altitude sickness for the presenters who came from Lima and abroad and are not used to working at these high altitudes.

The event left all presenters and participants a warm feeling of achievement and looking forward to the next meeting in 2014.
