Like the reviewers above, I would highly recommend this course, especially if you are trying to organise your trip from another country, before arriving in Mexico City. The pre-course contact and information, payment etc was very professional and prompt.
In addition, upon arrival, the course instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable regarding aspects of Mexican culture, the city, where to eat, accomodation, transport etc.
Content-wise, the course was very thorough. It was a lot of work in two weeks, with plenty of reading, project work and theory. But I would have been disappointed if it hadn’t been hard work, having paid the money, and having expected to come out of it confident that I could teach a class.
I found the thoery to be well balanced with class observation and teaching practice. The course was well structured and the accumulation of knowledge and practice allowed me to feel that I had what I needed by the end of it.
The resources, in particular some of the digital/online content, was excellent and I’m sure I’ll continue to use some of it as a reference when teaching.
Post-course (I’ve only finished in the last week), I have been given numerous contacts regarding work, and am receiving ongoing contact and assistance from the instructor.
Overall a highly positive experience.
The Digital Literacy Coach (DLC) shall, under the supervision of the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) & Special Projects Coordinator, ensure that digital literacy is carefully and appropriately integrated into all content areas. The majority of the Digital Literacy Coach’s time will be spent working with teachers and students to achieve integration between digital literacy and content objectives as well as providing training and support to create a global and collaborative approach to learning. The DLC will pursue instructional change in the classroom through increased duration and intensity of DLC-teacher interaction.
