Dal to offer professional-level courses in English for Chilean engineers

December 7, 2018

Dalhousie University and the University of Santiago de Chile have embarked on a new partnership. A release from Dal reports that the agreement will enable new training in the development and delivery of English-language courses to Engineering students at USACH. “We developed this certificate because it combines language plus pedagogical and methodological professional development for educators,” stated Jennifer MacDonald, Head Teacher of English-as-a-second language (ESL) in Dal’s College of Continuing Education program. Dal adds that the agreement with USACH is part of the CALDO consortium, an initiative undertaken by 10 of Canada’s U15 institutions to promote partnerships in Latin America. Dal (NS)
