Upcoming blended-learning CPD opportunity for German teachers and tutors with regional seminar at UEA

Conduct a classroom-based investigation as basis for continued professional development
The Goethe Institute in collaboration with UEA Think German Network at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, are pleased to offer a blended-learning professional development course with three integrated seminar days in Norwich.
Starting in February 2019, the Goethe-Institut offers the blended learning professional development course DLL Module 3 (Deutsch Lehren Lernen). The DLL programme puts the classroom, the learners and teachers at the centre of learning according to pedagogical principles. It is geared to a teacher-led investigation of their own classroom-based research, which aims to support a continued professional development. One of the key principles of the DLL programme is to work collaboratively with other participants, in online activities as well as in the seminars.
The topic of module 3 is German as a Foreign Language. Participants will explore their own skills and knowledge of teaching grammatical structures as well as the functional and effective use of German as a foreign language. They will learn to devise exercises and tasks to achieve the learning objectives and support interactive learning, but also reflect on how German as a foreign language may be taught in compliance with current primary, GCSE and A-Level requirements.
Participants work through the module in an online-course on the Goethe-Institut Moodle Learning Platform on their own and in collaboration with each other. They will be supported by experienced trainer Sabine Junker and Liz Black. The seminars at the UEA will be led by experienced teacher and trainer Bettina Pfeiffer (UEA Think German Network) and conducted in German. It is strongly recommended that your German language skills correspond to proficiency level B2 (CEFR).
