Students wanted for Pre-sessional Materials Trial

(30 January 2018)

The English Language Centre is looking for international students who will be in Durham at the start of the Easter vacation and who would be interested in helping the Centre trial new lessons for the summer Pre-sessional courses. Volunteers don't need to have taken a Pre-sessional course to take part, although they don't mind if you have. If you are interested in volunteering, please book through the Training Course Booking System.

There are five entirely new lessons for the coming summer and are looking for volunteers to participate in a one week 'boot camp'. You will take the lesson in a typical Pre-sessional classroom setup and then feed back to us about your experience of the lesson.

You will need to be available from 10am - 12 noon, Monday - Friday, week commencing 19 March and attend all five 'lessons'. The topics are:

  • Listening in Lectures (parts 1 & 2)
  • Reading and Note-taking
  • Approaching Essay Assignments
  • Argumentation in Writing

Refreshments will be provided.
