Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

NOTE that due to the closing down of the university between March 11 and April 3, our sessions on March 16, 23 and 30 will take place, but in a virtual format. More information will follow via Moodle.
This course deals with classroom interaction as a specific form of institutionalised discourse. Given the complex relationship between language, interaction and learning, we will be concerned with the linguistic practices that are observable in English-medium content subject and in EFL/ESL classrooms in secondary and tertiary settings. During the introductory phase of the seminar we will discuss the main features of classroom interaction, the relevance of classroom discourse to teaching and learning as well as different models of linguistic analysis that can be used to investigate classroom discourse.

The participants will become familiar with the linguistic specificities and pedagogical implications of classroom interaction and its relevance for the education process. They will get to know different forms of analysing spoken discourse and will undertake their own analyses of a select corpus of classroom interaction according to a specific theoretical and methodological perspective chosen by them.

This course combines mini-lectures, on- & offline assignments, reading-based group work and discussion, and student-directed research work leading to a presentation and a written project report. Students who decide to write their bachelor paper will produce a research paper based on their classroom discourse project.
