We will help you to design a modern interactive module incorporating the latest approaches to teaching modern foreign languages and on-line learning. In addition, you will learn to design effective assignments which will allow students to achieve more in-depth learning in the classroom. You will be guided through this course in a number of steps:

First, analyze the needs of your target group. For this you will need to design clearly formulated learning objectives and ensure that the module will provide a clear and coherent structure.
Secondly, you choose a theme for your module, determine the type of assignments and the final test/ product. You will focus on designing online content in a way that will not only do justice to different learning styles, but will also connect to students' psychological needs. Finally, you present your module for feedback.
