The School of Global Access is currently developing a series of post-TESL courses to meet the professional development needs of ELL instructors.
This project addresses a need for targeted, in-depth post-TESL professional development that focuses on the skill development of ELL practitioners who are working with newcomers.
The Post TESL Certificate Program focuses on enhancing the instructional skills of ELL practitioners in Alberta. Each four-week course is fully online, facilitated by subject matter experts, and provides the opportunity to connect with practitioners across the province. Course content is designed to increase instructor knowledge and encourages practical application in the ELL classroom.
The pilot offering of these courses is offered at no cost to all ELL practitioners in Alberta. Participants are free to complete any or all courses offered. Those who successfully complete four of the five courses will be eligible for a certificate.
The first courses will be offered in the fall of 2018. Registration information will be available June 2018.
