／Course Objectives and method
The students I would like to see in this Seminar are those who have an interest in teaching languages. Although this seminar is in English, that does not mean that what is learned here is not applicable for teaching other languages. These methods and concepts can be used in the teaching of any language.
I hope to get in this course those who want to teach languages.
What we study in this Seminar will be such topics as:
1. The teaching of languages;
2. In particular, teaching us ing the Task-based Language Teaching (TBLT) paradigm;
3. Language learning motivation
4. Quantitative research methods
5. Technology in language education
If I were to follow the same schedule as last year, we will first study test-making and how to evaluate tests.
Then we will start on making materials for the classroom, especially those made under the concepts of TBLT.
Next, we will design a course for the junior high or high school that is entirely on-line.
|Attendance is important for this seminar. There will also be some assignments as well as some project work. All this goes into a final assessment.|
