Second Language Classroom Research (distance)

In this module we will consider how different theories of learning in general and language learning, in particular, can inform language pedagogy and classroom practices. We will also explore how different types of learners approach the task of language learning since without understanding how our students as individuals function in a language classroom, language teaching cannot be effective. The major aim of the module is to provide you with the knowledge necessary for being a reflective teacher who is able to analyse and evaluate the learning and teaching process based on an understanding of what second language learning entails.
