The world of higher education is changing. Increased globalisation. Increased digitalisation. Increased opportunities.
York Associates’ online courses for academic staff are designed to help you take advantage of these opportunities.
Develop the language and communication skills you need to deliver exceptional learning experiences for your students in English.
15 or 20 hours of highly-interactive live virtual training with a highly-experienced trainer, designed to develop your online communication skills and improve your virtual lecturing performance by focusing on real-world situations.
Choose whether to study 1:1 or in closed groups, and choose the times that work best for you. And you can always top-up with more live sessions if you need them.
From Hangouts to Teams, and from Skype to GoTo Meeting, we can adapt to the platforms that you prefer to use.
And if you don’t have a favourite? We will work with you to choose the platform that best meets your needs, and then train you to make sure you feel comfortable using it.
Benefit from access to additional learning content that has been curated to deepen your learning, and be accessed at home, at the office, or even on the go.
Download bite-sized specialised webinars, podcasts, e-books and other media on a range of relevant topics to you, including language learning strategies, tips for more effective academic presentations, and strategies for more impactful academic writing.
We understand that improving your grammatical accuracy and range of vocabulary is important to you.
So when you’re not in your live training sessions, you will be able to use our online learning platform wherever and whenever is most convenient for you.
Access customised language learning exercises offline to develop your confidence and accuracy, increase your range of work-related vocabulary, and improve your command of key grammar structures.
Designed to be flexible, the course encourages you to take responsibility for your own learning. We’ll teach you how to be an effective learner by helping you to create your own action plan, and train you to use the tools that you’ll need to successfully reach your objectives.
When it comes to the content of your training sessions, a managed and bite-sized flow of learning input allows you to absorb what you learn more easily and apply it to your work more frequently. And relevant feedback given during your live sessions will also increase training impact.
Take advantage of various opportunities for you to both practise your English and network with other academic professionals on topics that matter to you and your work.
Meet with like-minded lecturers and other university staff from around the world, and become part of the York Associates online community.
