Instructor of NU GSE Philip Montgomery hosted a seminar for English, Russian and Kazakh language department faculty of Kazakh Humanities and Law University
Instructor of Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Education Philip Montgomery hosted a seminar for English, Russian and Kazakh language department faculty of Kazakh Humanities and Law University on the 2nd of October. The seminar on the topic “Strategies to improve syllabus design” was conducted in the framework of the educational-methodical seminar “Methodical maintenance of language courses and disciplines of the humanities and social sciences in higher school” which was organized by KazHLU.
Philip Montgomery was invited by KazHLU to share his experience in terms of improving syllabus design. The workshop presented strategies to create meaningful, challenging and measurable course outcomes, as well as to align those outcomes to varied assessment instruments.
Despite the fact that the seminar was insightful and informative there were plenty of questions asked during the lecture and after that. This makes us think that conducting similar seminars on the systematic basis would be reasonable.
