Course Materials: Design, Selection, and Use


Coursebooks are a useful resource, but they need to be used selectively, critically and creatively. This course provides some practical tools for teachers to help them use their materials effectively. It begins with a definition of the term ‘teaching materials’, followed by an exploration of background issues. These include advantages and disadvantages of using a coursebook in general; paper versus digital materials; criteria for design, evaluation and selection of a coursebook. The main focus then shifts to coursebook use; some reasons why we might want to adapt its material by omitting, changing or supplementing, and some useful guidelines on such adaptation, illustrated by a number of practical examples.
