Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The AE E-Teacher Program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs Office of English Language Programs (ECA/A/L). The program offers online, university-level professional development opportunities in the field of TESOL to English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers around the world. These professional development opportunities expose participants to U.S. student-centered teaching techniques, give insight into
U.S. culture and values, and foster opportunities to increase global awareness and understanding. The program endeavors to make professional development opportunities accessible to a wide range of participants, particularly those in low-resource and low-bandwidth contexts.
The purpose of this grant is to fund ongoing delivery of an 8-week online course developed by the awardee for the AE E-Teacher Program, in order to meet the programs objectives to provide virtual professional development to foreign teachers of English as a Foreign/Second Language and to provide Open Educational Resources (OER) in the form of course materials and modules.
