Module outline: Participant Roles & Responsibilities is a module that addresses the main players in the teaching and learning process. We all experienced some form of formal or informal education, and we recognise the systems that we have been in. After taking a look at contemporary and traditional teaching styles, we will delve into the how of teaching. We start at the basic teaching cycle and then focus on the various participants and how to make each interaction between them work.

Why are the roles and relationships of participants in the teaching and learning process important?
How do we teach? How do we learn? What do these two things have to do with one another practically. The teacher, students, environment, as well as the interactions between all these participants, are influential. Throughout this unit, you will come to understand, explicitly, how teaching works. This will place you in a position to use that process to be a really great teacher.

By the end of this module, you will know:
• the theories behind learning, and the role of social interaction in language acquisition.
• how different factors such as learning activities and learning styles affect learning.
• and use different strategies to activate learners into learning.

By the end of this module, you will understand:
• the difference between traditional and contemporary teaching (including the online space).
• the conversational model as a simple foundation for effective teaching.
• that language learning takes place through a conversational framework that includes cognitive and social processes.

• that teachers rely on a range of learning activities and strategies to allow for effective teaching and learning.
