PROGRAM IN SYNCHROCINE ONLINE MODALITY

The process of innovation in the Master’s Program in Teaching English as a Foreign Language reflects its interest in continuously interrogating its ethos in light of its consistency with institutional guidelines and environmental demands.

The MEI program effectively incorporates the foundational principles of the Institutional Educational Model into its implementation, namely, the Integrated Formative Experience Approach and the Pedagogical Approach. The former is integrated, for example, through the co-constructed provision of solutions for the current development of the profession, while the latter is integrated through active methodologies of participant-centered learning and their experiences, as well as evaluative processes based on performances that promote reflection on teaching and learning processes in English.

The MEI program aligns with the purposes of postgraduate education as it seeks the development of applied knowledge relevant to the professional environments of the participants, based on theoretical reflection on the teaching and learning of English.

The MEI program also responds to socio-political demands regarding the teaching and learning of English in formal instructional environments. Firstly, the program focuses on the foreign language that, by default, public policy has continuously privileged since the late nineties. The implementation of a policy that improves the quality of English learning as a foreign language is inevitably mediated by the generation of learning opportunities by highly qualified teachers. The aforementioned role associated with the teacher has been consistently and empirically emphasized by relevant literature, which translates into highly qualified teachers meeting disciplinary and pedagogical standards. In this regard, the 2021 standards build on almost a decade of experience since the enactment of the guiding standards published in 2014. The current standards focus on the formative role of the teacher; recognize the complexity of teaching; and are recognized as ‘professional values.’

Internationalization: International internship “English Teaching in a Global Context” The Missouri State University internship, in collaboration with the Master in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at Andrés Bello University, strengthens the skills of English teachers. Available for MEI students and graduates and English teachers from Chile or Latin America. More information here
