Published on

my work on how to provide a customized curriculum package based on TELL ME MORE system to enhance the use from China universities. In this way, when universities implement TELL ME MORE, they can immediately have the recommended 2-year-long learning programs for students\' systematic and periodic self-study on the system. For teachers, they don\'t need to plan and create programs, they can just focus on maintain student\'s work and they will have the final results from learners with same design programs.

  6. 6. Course Design – Key Remarks <ul><li>…… In designing College English courses, requirements for increasing competence in listening and speaking should be fully considered, and corresponding teaching hours and credits should be adequately allocated. Moreover, the extensive use of advanced information technology should be encouraged, computer- and web- based courses should be developed, and students should be provided with a favorable environment and facilities for language learning…… (page 24) </li></ul><ul><li>…… All the courses, whether computer-based or classroom-based, should be fully individual-orientated, taking into account students with different starting points, so that students who start from lower levels with be well taken care of while students whose English is better will find room for further development…… (page 24) </li></ul>
  7. 7. Teaching Model – Key Remarks <ul><li>…… Colleges and universities should remould the existing, unitary, teacher-centered pattern of language teaching by introducing computer- and classroom- based teaching models. The new model should be built on modern information technology, particularly network technology, so that English language teaching and learning will be, to a certain extent, free from the constraints of time or place and geared towards students’ individualized and autonomous learning…… (page 25) </li></ul><ul><li>…… Colleges and universities should explore and establish a web-based listening and speaking teaching model that suits their own needs in line with their own conditions and students’ English proficiency, and deliver listening and speaking courses via the intranet or campus network…… (page 25) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Evaluation – Key Remarks <ul><li>…… A comprehensive, objective, scientific and accurate evaluation system is of vital importance to the achievement of course goals. It not only helps teachers obtain feedback, improve the administration of teaching, and ensure teaching quality but also provides students with an effective means to adjust their learning strategies and methods, improve their learning efficiency and achieve the desired learning effects…… (page 26-27) </li></ul><ul><li>…… Summative assessment is conducted at the end of a teaching phase. It mainly consists of final tests and proficiency tests, designed to evaluate students’ all-round ability to use English…… (page 27) </li></ul>
