Teaching in English E-learning Resources

These e-modules look at a range of communicative strategies and explicit language use for English-taught classes with the multilingual, multicultural classroom. The resources have been created so that teachers can autonomously gain insights into and reflect on communicative skills for English-taught content courses. Implementing these strategies and language help reduce the students' cognitive load when learning new content in a foreign language.
