In this supplementary course (“Begleitübung”) to the lecture “Introduction to the Teaching of English”, students acquire basic knowledge and skills in dealing with academic key concepts and techniques from a TEFL perspective, which they will later on need, apply and further deepen in the context of their study program. For example, students will acquire knowledge of how to prepare, conduct and evaluate classroom observations (observation of English lessons) in a criterion-guided manner. They will explore the aspects that need to be taken into account when developing their own teaching and learning materials (e.g. worksheets, tasks, exercises) and understand which didactic principles of TEFL are used to design modern textbooks. Another focus is the acquisition of basic knowledge and skills with regard to the writing of term papers in TEFL. Aspects such as finding and developing a topic, researching relevant secondary literature, structuring term papers, working with the style sheet as well as using correct citation/bibliography will also be dealt with.
This “Begleitübung” is a compulsory module part of the basic module in TEFL. Students are strongly advised to attend both the lecture and this supplementary course in the same term as the contents and topics covered in this course are relevant for the written final (written exam in the context of the introductory lecture).
