Cognition & L2 Teach & Learn
Cognition and the cognitive process of the L2 learner will be the focus of this course. While exploring the different learning theories that have influenced the development of teaching approaches in the 20th and 21st centuries (e.g. direct, audio-oral, SGAV, communicative and task-based approaches) students will develop teaching units relevant to specific audiences and contexts and using appropriate media and teaching aids (texts, audio or visual recordings, websites). These teaching modules will be presented to the rest of the group at the end of the session if possible in the form of a classroom simulation.
