The International House Certificate in 121 Methodology is designed to give participants a solid grasp of the main issues and techniques involved in teaching 121.
To prepare teachers for working in a 1-2-1 teaching context, focussing on the main issues and techniques involved.
The IH 121 course is divided into 11 modules, which are a mixture of input, reflection on experience and discussion. Each module has a set of pre-module reading and tasks along with weekly tasks. The modules focus on the following areas:
The course is run entirely online by qualified tutors. Assessment is based on an end of course portfolio. The portfolio is made of weekly tasks that complete each module. These put into practice the module input and encourage experimentation and reflection. There is also an end of course assignment. Portfolios must be submitted within two weeks of the course closure date. The grading of the course is Pass or Fail and is moderated by the IH assessment unit.
The course is paced at one module per week. We anticipate participants spending a minimum of 7 hours per week online and doing tasks. In addition time is needed to do the pre-module reading and to complete each portfolio task.
