In this last of our four-part series on communicative skills for teaching in English, we present an e-module on teaching-related writing, which is available on the ILIAS Continuing Education learning platform.

Writing skills for teaching in English

Good teaching and clear communication in a foreign language also requires clear writing. This e-module addresses five topics: teaching statements, catchy course descriptions, transparent syllabi, handouts/exercise sheets, and written feedback for students. Each topic contains a mix of video tutorials, review questions, and language handouts. Via the e-module, participants can submit samples of new or existing pieces of teaching-related writing and receive feedback from the EMI team on clarity and language accuracy. This e-module has been designed for those new to teaching in English as well as more experienced teachers seeking feedback on existing materials in English.

Beyond these e-modules

If you missed the previous articles on lecturing, student interaction or general language skills, check those out as well. Finally, we would like to highlight that a classroom observation with detailed feedback is an additional option to reflect on and develop your teaching in English skills.

All the best in your future teaching endeavors!
