This seminar wants to explore the “strange new worlds” of distance learning – or are these so strange after all?
In the course of this pandemic, the only feasible way to reach out to learners of English was via online platforms and video conference tools. Although these have been used by many (interested and invested) teachers, their use was completely new to other educators, as such tools never formed a part of their training at or after university.
This seminar aims to provide the participants with an overview of the historical development of IT-based learning tools just as much as with an overview of some / most (but never all) the media available out there. It goes without saying that the latter media also need to undergo close methodological scrutiny as to their benefit and usefulness. On top, the psychological implication of “distance” courses just as much as methodological approaches to organise such a form of learning will be dealt with. Examples of tools used in English classes in Bavaria will round off this overview of a learning arrangement which is sure to gain further importance in years to come.
Lastly students will be asked to present teaching / learning units based or centred on one of the manifold IT- and online tools at their disposal. This presentation of a teaching unit should ultimately lay the groundwork for a term paper, in which the participants are to present this unit alongside the theoretical concepts underlying their lesson.
The course is part of admission "DID ENG HS".
