Module assignments


The class is aimed at advanced Bachelor students who have already covered crucial aspects of EFL teaching in their foundation course (“Basismodul”). The skills and the knowledge acquired are going to be put to good use by adapting them to new and complex contexts. Prof. Gehring`s textbook “Englische Fachdidaktik” (2010) is a solid basis for further steps in the field of “Didactics”.
By the end of the module, participants are expected to
• be familiar with tradition and change in German EFL teaching and understand the underlying principles of educational policies.
• consider different options regarding EFL teacher education in Europe.
• be aware of documents such as the CEFR and its companion volume and their impact on FL learning and teaching in Europe.
• critically assess the significance of native speaker models against the backdrop of plurilingual and pluricultural approaches.
• name, explain and evaluate different approaches towards the use of media in the EFL classroom.
• provide insightful commentaries and predictions regarding (the future of) e-learning in the EFL classroom.
• explain the connection between testing and learning tasks and their significance for planning and units of work as well as individual lessons.
• analyse a variety of tasks for different age groups with a view to collecting evidence of learning.
• be familiar with standards and standardized tests.
• shed a critical light on lesson plans and their viability based on established research in the field.
The assessment chosen is a portfolio which will cover the content and skills listed above. You will be asked to employ your knowledge and display your skills when tackling different tasks frequently based on authentic materials from e.g. textbooks. The type of assessment is cumulative, i.e. you will be asked to submit work at regular intervals. Details following!
