Lecturer in TESOL and Applied Linguistics
Our international placement scheme has been running for four years now, and I'm delighted to see it go from strength to strength.
Dr Vander Viana, lecturer in TESOL and Applied Linguistics at the University of Stirling, said: “Our international placement scheme has been running for four years now, and I'm delighted to see it go from strength to strength.
“We currently offer two placement destinations to our students depending on how much teaching experience they have. Novice teachers can be tutored in one of the placements while experienced teachers have the opportunity to design, deliver and assess a full module by themselves.
“Overall, this international placement scheme plays a key role in enhancing our TESOL students' interpersonal, intercultural, pedagogical and employability skills. This is a unique experience that makes them stand out from other recent Masters graduates."
