Professional Training to Develop Content-Based Instruction in Higher Education
AbstractMany TESL professionals have not had training specifically in content-based instruction (CBl) methodology. The lack of professional training in CBl is increasingly problematic as the number of programs adopting some content-based methodology continues to rise. One obvious response to this gap in pedagogical training could be for institutions engaging in CBl to create their own professional orientation programs for experienced faculty members. This article describes one such response at a Japanese university. Drawing on our four years' experience in developing a specific CBI teacher training program, we suggest a number of training points that could be used by teacher trainers to help college faculty to overcome the major hurdles encountered in implementing a CBl approach in higher education.
