Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

EPCO Advanced builds on the skills acquired in EPCO and aims to further enable students to cope with texts that belong to highly specialised professional genres. As such, the course is strongly process-oriented, focussing on the development of transferablegeneric skills applicable to a range of different genres, and not exclusively product-oriented.
These skills will be practised in connection with content information of
one specific professional domain, e.g. business, technology, law. The topic (or professional domain) mainly serves as carrier content through
which to develop the three main skill areas worked on in EPCO:
- Function (Discourse): identifying key text types and their functions and placing them in their context of use, establishing links between text types
- Language (Text): identifying characteristic features of such texts and genre conventions (moves and lexico-grammar)
- Content (Topic): familiarising learners with the procedures and conventions of the specific professional domain, its key concepts and terms.

The course consists of two main components:
A. In the first half of the course the lecturer introduces the students to a professional field (topic) of her choice using the methodology outlined for EPCO.
B. The second half of the course is dedicated to a student project, the results of which are presented in a mini-conference at the end of the semester and a written project report.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

EPCO Advanced aims to give students chance to put the skills they have worked on so far throughout the language competence programme into practice.

Very generally, the course aims to:
- Identify the features that characterise texts and that help realise their communicative purposes
- Explain language choices in term of social, cultural, and institutional contexts
- Examine the understandings of those who write/read the genres and how the genre relates to users' activities.
