This course aims to develop course participants personal as well as professional skills in writing, since they need to be competent writers themselves before they can impart the skills to their learners later on. The course focuses more on the techniques of teaching writing in terms of approaches to teaching writing, planning the writing class, techniques of teaching the different types of writing, and evaluation and feedback on learners writing. Thus, while the first part of the course will lay the foundation for participants to be competent in writing, the second part of the course will help them to become competent teachers of writing.
