The British Council India (BCI) and UCL Institute of Education, (UCL IOE) UK, togather has started a free online course for teachers in India to hone their skills and knowledge. This online course is in simple steps to help teachers hone their reflective skills and improve their practice in the classroom, said the programme description.

'We are launching our first free, online course designed to help teachers in India continue their professional development. We're bringing the best of UK expertise through our partner UCL Institute of Education together to provide a learning experience for thousands across the country who may not otherwise have access to this type of content,' British Council Director India, Alan Gemmell, said in a release.
This has been especially designed for the needs of teachers in India, particularly those teaching in English or who teach English as a subject. Nevertheless, it is also relevant for teachers around the world including those from other low-resource contexts.
