Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

"Intercultural learning" has become as buzzword in general pedagogy and language teaching specifically over the past decade or so. Try and define it, though, and you will find a variety of shapes that intercultural learning comes in, ranging from the more traditional "Landeskunde" approach to integrated language activities that focus on the pragmatics of a communication situation. Therefore, we will look at the various ways in which "culture" enters the classroom and discuss what it is that students at secondary level can learn from and about an engagement with culture and cultures. This gives us a chance of critically investigating areas such as intercultural learning or "Fremdverstehen", assess text books and course materials for their cultural component, and develop and discuss activities relating to intercultural learning.
Assessment: classroom discussion, short presentations, teaching project, teaching portfolio
