Portfolio

My DELTA was extremely rewarding, and I learnt a lot about teaching, theories and practices. I’ve chosen to post my portfolio in case anyone finds research work interesting, or if there are any people out there wanting to know more about the kind of work covered on a DELTA course.

If you are thinking about doing the DELTA, I urge you to take a look at my Module 3 submission (the one where you design a course for a specific group of students). One thing I found was that the input I received for the module did not adequately prepare me for the scale of the module and what needs to be submitted. I would have been better prepared and less stressed had I been given the opportunity to read an example first.

  3. Oops commented twice. Well, three times now. Didn’t think my first comment stuck. Sorry about that – consider this my way of saying thank you for posting your portfolio and feel free to delete one of the comments 🙂

    1. Haha no worries-thank you for your comments? Where do you live/work at the moment?

      1. Hey, I live in Kayseri, Turkey and I teach English at an intensive English program at a private university. I`m doing Module 2 with Avo Bell in Sofia, Bulgaria. They offer a blended course, so I`m working on my EPA here in Turkey, and in August I`m heading there. It’s nice to meet you, Simon 🙂
