Teaching in English

An International Faculty Advancement Program

The Teaching in English program (TIE) is an intensive course of study designed for international university instructors from across disciplines who wish to strengthen their writing and/or speaking skills for teaching in English and to improve their research writing and presentation skills.

Taking a unique approach to language teaching, the courses are taught by specially trained and highly experienced faculty from various disciplines to meet the particular needs of your academic program.  Our faculty can design a course to study effective learning methods while enhancing your faculty’s expertise in English and communication.


“The course gives us new methods of how to teach in English. That is to say, any class needs to focus on interaction, not only between student and teacher, but also among students. With the help of the instructor, we learned cooperative methods that can be used in our own course.”

“The major strengths in this course are the very interesting class discussions with the instructor who is a real expert in her field. I found lots of useful teaching methodologies and I hope to be able to apply some of them in my future classes."

“This course is exciting and the instructor is excellent! I believe the instructor made great efforts to plan and organize the course for all the examples. What’s more, the instructor’s extensive knowledge impressed me greatly. This course is very useful and helpful as a whole.”

“This Teaching in English program has contributed much to enhancing the quality of the teaching staff from Shanghai Normal University. Located close to the center of American culture – New York City, Montclair State University has definitely offered our teachers an eye-opening experience to witness the diversity of American culture. With a well-designed curriculum that caters to the needs of our teachers, this training program exposed them to student-centered methodology in a bilingual teaching environment. It raised the teaching competence and improved the instruction quality of these teachers. In the long run, it also plays a positive role in improving their scientific research ability.”
