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, focusing on the development of transferable generic skills applicable to a range of different genres, and not exclusively product-oriented, i.e. focusing on the end-product(s) of a limited number of specific genres. This is seen as an essential skill in a world of constantly changing and newly-emerging discourse practices and their textual products; EPCO Advanced aims to give students chance to put the skills they have worked on so far throughout the language competence programme into practice.

Although the main focus in EPCO Advanced is on the acquisition of transferrable skills, these skills will be practised in connection with content information of one specific professional domain, e.g. business, technology, law. These topics (or professional domains) mainly serve 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.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Assignments, project presentation at mini-conference and written project report.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

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

Prüfungsstoff

EPCO Advanced 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

Gruppe 2

Please note that course assessment includes a mini-conference which will take place on Saturday 14th January, 2012 from 9 - 14. Attendance at the whole session is compulsory.
