This online teacher training consists of 15 hours (4 synchronous/ live meetings with the trainers and 11 hours of studying and exchanging ideas and experiences with co-learners) of training. It includes how to teach special groups of children, either with mobility issues, or learning difficulties, or ethnic origin.
Apart from study hours according to a time-schedule, the trainees will attend four (4) hours online synchronous Skype sessions with the trainers (optional). The trainers will answer any questions in three days at the latest.
The synchronous sessions are not obligatory, but the trainees could participate in order to ask questions and “meet” all participants.
Trainee teachers have to upload at least one post in every Unit of this seminar and to upload at least ten answers to other participants. They also should work on the Final Assignment as well as to fill in the evaluation form of the seminar.
Trainers will be at the trainees’ disposal in order for the later to contact them through Skype, phone or e-mail.
