23 - Communication with TPTs was via /phone/Skype - OCT read TP feedback and plans after each TP and built a profile of trainees - OCT did all of the stage reports in consultation with TPTs - OCT did all the marking, with the TPTs doing shadow marking Overview of the first course IHL A 13-week course 10 participants TP in 2 blocks of 4 weeks Simulation: OCT was in different centre to TP tutors:

24 A sense of isolation for OCT and trainees The lack of flexibility in the course Building rapport and a working relationship with trainees Effective communication with TPTs Absence of experiential learning Pre-course: Concerns

25 A sense of isolation for OCT and trainees The lack of flexibility in the course Building rapport and a working relationship with trainees Effective communication with TPTs Absence of experiential learning OCT worked 2 hours/day on course; F2F tutorials could help trainees The online CELTA has flexibility of revisiting key units Rapport building done via live rooms, discussion forums and s Greater objectivity and efficiency in communication Replaced with wide range of video clips of real teaching; no apparent impact on TP Pre-course: Concerns
