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
• explore the role of digital media in EFL teaching by focusing on relevant scholarly sources and applications, e.g. online games, websites, tests, etc.
• be familiar with the way digital learning is reflected in curricula and educational policies.
• provide insightful commentaries and predictions regarding (the future of) e-learning in the EFL classroom.
• be familiar with tradition and change in German EFL teaching by particularly focusing on the use of different teaching and learning methods.
• be aware of documents such as the CEFR and its companion volume and their impact on FL learning and teaching in Europe.
• name, explain and evaluate different approaches towards the use of media 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 portfolio which we shall use as your final assessment 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. Digital media as well as methods will be very relevant. The portfolio is a cumulative type of assessment, i.e. specifica samples of your work will be collected. Details following in due course!
