About The Provider

Alison is one of the world’s largest free learning platforms for education and skills training. It is a for-profit social enterprise dedicated to making it possible for anyone, to study anything, anywhere, at any time, for free online, at any subject level. Through our mission we are a catalyst for positive social change, creating opportunity, prosperity, and equality for everyone.

Alison was founded in Galway, Ireland, in 2007 and has grown organically to become a major force in free online education and skills training. Today, with more than 13 million learners in 195 countries, Alison is changing how the world learns and up-skills.

They are committed to equality and access to education and skills training irrespective of gender, geography, economic status or any other barriers that can so often stunt potential. So they offer a range of free courses that meet the many diverse needs of our learners. The UN declared in Article 26 of the 1946 Declaration of Human Rights that “Education shall be free…”. This statement will always inspire us.

Alison was founded by Alison CEO, Mike Feerick. Mike is a businessman, but one with a difference. He believes in social impact, and that you can build a financially successful business focused on meeting a huge global social need, making education and skills training more accessible for everyone. He invites anyone who believes that too, to support the Alison mission.

Alison is free of charge to you. But it’s still a business – albeit a socially-focused one. We are a social enterprise making our money through advertising, merchandise, and the sale of Certificates and Diplomas, should a graduate choose to buy one.

This free online teaching skills course will guide you through essential communication skills for teachers. It will begin by giving you an introduction to communication in the classroom setting. It will then discuss the functions of different types of talk and will show you how classroom communication serves a mixture of content talk, procedural talk, and behavior control talk. You will then learn how to apply these types of communication in the classroom to stimulate student thinking.

Next, you will learn how to recognize the different elements of communication such as verbal, nonverbal and unintended communication. You will study some of the issues that may arise when using non-verbal communication and also learn about structures of participation such as questions and answers, discussion, and group work. Lastly, you will learn how these different structures can positively impact a teacher’s preparation for class.

The Effective Communication Techniques for Teachers and Trainers course will be of great interest to any educators and trainers who want to learn more about effective teaching skills and how to use them in an educational setting. By applying the different functions and types of communication covered in this teaching skills course, managing difficult situations in the classroom can become much easier.
