Methodology and Language Teaching - EDPJ5013

Year - 2020

This core unit provides an introduction to language teaching methodology. It introduces up-to-date principles for language teaching, and also has a practical focus. Students have the opportunity to use these teaching principles, and also to reflect on their own and other's teaching practices. The unit aims to assist students in becoming reflective practitioners. Students are encouraged to think critically and creatively about which aspects of classroom teaching practice might or might not be appropriate to apply in their teaching contexts. The unit includes a peer teaching practice and practice in planning lessons. It also includes a focus on teacher talk, that is, how language teachers can communicate effectively with their learners in the classroom.
