Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This is an interactive research course with the aim of introducing a new non-formal language learning phenomenon as research paradigm, which is under-explored in the current literature: namely, the "language cafe". The phenomenon will be explored in interdisciplinary ways (sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, SLA, multilingualism, psychology of language learning, language teaching) by the course participants, ideally in small groups, by using a mixed methods approach (qualitative + quantitative methods + field studies).
The course is suited for students interested into research of non-formal language teaching and learning, multilingualism or psychology of language learning. The course is highly explorative, because this is an under-investigated, potentially new research field. It should render the course participants sensitive towards new methodological paradigms and try exploring new methods or the ones already acquired in the course of their previous studies.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

written and oral.
The course should be highly interactive and practical with students elaborating their own group projects (presentation of a preferred topic chosen from this field (to be chosen during first 14 days of course after brain storming period in the first session). Additionally students can bring in own material and ideas, 'mini teaching workshops in class'). Students should discuss their findings and thoughts in class and produce a joint folder/dossier about the research topic of the seminar.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

active participation in blocked classes (max. one block missing!), field research, presentation of field research in class, application of explorative qualitative and/or quantitative methods, round table discussions, active contribution of own ideas, final proseminar paper which should feature also in the final class dossier.
