5 Teaching Challenges from Cambridge English!

with 2 comments

5 Teaching Challenges, the new campaign launched by Cambridge English, is now live and comes to support teachers’ development with free resources and courses. The campaign is centred on the Five Challenges, so that teachers can choose to develop their skills in any of the following areas:

  • Professional development
  • Motivating learners
  • Correcting learners’ mistakes
  • Using digital in the classroom
  • Using English in the classroom.

After the preferable field has been chosen, teachers will have the chance to explore this area of teaching in five simple steps. Each step takes just 1–2 hours to complete. Each week, they will receive an email with a new step, with links to all the videos, articles and resources they need to complete. They can do as many Challenges as they like, and in any order. What we recommend, however, is that one challenge is completed –  before starting the next Challenge! A Record of Achievement will be sent to those who finish all five steps of their Challenge. Teachers can complete this and add it to their professional development portfolio. The challenges, which are directly linked to the areas of the Teaching Framework, will be a great free resource for skills development. Please find further details by watching the video about the 5 Teaching Challenges and following #5teachingchallenges on social media. Sign up here and start challenging yourself in your preferable area!
