Diploma of Educational Studies - Effective Communication in Education
Accredited by London Teacher Training College (LTTC, UK)


The emphasis of the course is training participants on effective communication for their learners’ practical application and daily use. A range of techniques and skills set in cultivating good listening skills, developing clear vocal enunciation, effective grammatical and lexicon usage, confidence building and varying teaching styles are imparted. Fundamentals of speaking and listening skills are tackled where effective listening techniques and the art of pronunciation, expression, and projection are honed as well. Physical awareness such as in gestures and body language is imparted through hands-on activities. The vocal literacy aspect includes grammatical and lexicon precision. Teaching methodologies use concepts from Benjamin Bloom’s taxonomy, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences and mind-mapping techniques. These are shared via fun and activity-based approaches. The trainer/ teacher will experience interactive ways in conducting Effective Communication through the learner-centered classroom structured settings.
