Course Framework and Methodology

Pre-class: For each lesson, participants prepare parts of content they intend to use in the classroom or revise those they’ve previously used. These are sent 1-2 days in advance to the LOS consultant, who reviews them for grammar/punctuation and general content quality and returns them before class.

During class: Participants present their content, usually 10-15 minutes apiece. The consultant comments on four areas: vocabulary, grammar, content, style. Participants also critique one another. The entire class is recorded.

Following class: The consultant sends each participant a written summary of Points to Work On for the week, which includes points specific to that individual and general points for all regarding presentation technique. As well, the recorded lesson is sent.

Course as a whole: Each lesson further develops skills previously addressed. The weekly advice builds presentation skills organically; their undergirding logic helps them become second nature.

Language and Soft Skills Most Addressed
  • Basic vocabulary and grammar help
  • Effective use of voice tone
  • Language style (maintaining a balance between technical and common language)
  • Sensitivity toward trainee needs and learning approaches
  • Managing one’s own fears and blockages when facilitating in a foreign language – how to maintain control even when nothing turns out quite as expected and mistakes are made
  • Exploring the meaning and purpose for learning and how facilitation style impacts trainees long-term
