Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Recent theoretical approaches to second language acquisition have tended to foreground the quality of language as a social resource over its quality as a knowledge system. In institutional learning contexts learners interact with each other and with their teachers (often over extended periods of time) as well as with written texts. Thus, in instructed foreign/second language learning its very context (classroom, school, society) as well as the participants and their roles have to be taken into account when seeking explanations for how learner language develops. This course will consider learning theories that underwrite such a social-constructivist view of language learning and will introduce participants to a range of analytic approaches to educational discourse. Participants will apply selected approaches in their own small-scale research projects (Seminararbeit, BA-Arbeit).

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment is based on: final seminar paper, oral presentation, active participation in class, reading quizzes, homework assignments

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with the principles of discourse-oriented approaches to foreign language learning and teaching.

Participants will undertake a small empirical research project according to a specific theoretical and methodological perspective chosen by them.
