Summer 2018 West China ESL Teacher Professional Development Project

Since 2015, groups of English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) teachers from rural and remote areas in China have taken part in 3-month professional development projects at the Faculty of Education. These teachers work on improving their teaching practices and English language proficiency while living in Ottawa for the summer.

The project incorporates Faculty members and students (at both the undergraduate and graduate levels) as paid lecturers, workshop facilitators and volunteers.

Please email me if you would like to participate in this summer’s project. Give me an idea of how you would like to participate. Although I cannot guarantee that we can accommodate everyone, I will make every effort to help you gain experience working in an international teacher training project. Every little bit helps!

There are a limited number of paid positions. Priority for these will be given to students who are in second language education and have had prior experience in the project.
