Working with the University of Oxford's Department for Education, the British Council has developed a training course for lecturers. The Academic Teaching Excellence (ATE) is for lecturers who teach subjects in English. ATE is a methodology course and offers lecturers hands-on linguistic tools and teaching strategies to communicate with students in an effective manner. It can also help lecturers attract more international students to their course.
Not what I had expected but much better, it has made me think about aspects that I had never thought about.
