Methodology and Language Teaching - EDPJ5013

Year - 2018

This unit provides an introduction to language teaching methodology. It covers the principles for teaching English as a second and foreign language. It looks at both theoretical and practical issues, but has a particularly practical focus. The unit will focus on key aspects of classroom language teaching practice and students will have the opportunity to practice these and to reflect on their own and other's practice. Students will be 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 aims to assist students in becoming reflective practitioners. The unit includes a mini-teaching practice and students are expected to be able to give feedback about their own and others' teaching.
