Training Events

Short-term joint staff training events will be organised by the CATAPULT consortium: 24 LSP teachers/language teacher educators will be able to take part in these training activities throughout the project’s lifecycle. Participants will be in a unique position to get training from experts sourced among the host institutions’ staff on current issues faced by LSP teachers and language teacher educators today. A cross-analysis of LSP teaching methods and LSP teacher education programmes will be on the agenda of these three-day events. The training activities will also provide an opportunity to take part in discussions during workshops on the sharing of good practice and to offer feedback on the tools developed within the project. Finally, the observation of local LSP teachers using some of the tools and methods implemented in the training offered in the project MOOC will also give these events a practical dimension.
