Introducing English as a Lingua Franca: An Online Tutorial

This tutorial aims to raise students' awareness of their own use of English in mixed language groups. It begins with a brief background to ELF and to a discourse analytic approach to talk-in-interaction. The main section of the tutorial is a description of a group activity which students can do in or outside of class, involving:

recording a group discussiontrying transcriptioncomparing and discussing a short section of their transcription. 

The activity is described in detailed steps, making this tutorial one which students should be able to follow without further input from a module tutor. The tutorial contains interactive flashcards of transcription symbols, video and audio of classroom discussion in mixed language groups, and suggestions for further reading.

"PDF Presenter is a free PDF presentation software to display your PDF documents through an external projector."

 

Shona Whyte:

This is handy if you want to show slides in PDF format.  There are also whiteboard tools allowing you to annotate with a mouse or pen (if you're using interactive technology: IWB, IVP etc).

Learn to use a corpus interface from the Brigham Young University. You can use either the British National Corpus (BNC) or the Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA).

 

This section will familiarise you with a language corpus that supports refined search options and provides data that is specific and more reliable.

 

You can return to this material for tips and advice, when willing to use the corpus as a tool for revising your own piece of text or for exploring the English language.

 

 

1. Corpus basics

 

2. Simple searches

 

3. Words that fit together: collocations

 

4. Building your vocabulary: word families

 

5. The appropriate language: mind the register

 

Time estimate: 3 hours

Making Interactive Lectures

Making Interactive Lectures | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

 

"Created by Heather Macdonald College of William and Mary and Rebecca Teed, SERC and updated by Gail Hoyt, University of Kentucky, Jennifer Imazeki, San Diego State University, Barbara Millis University of Texas, San Antonio, and Jose Vazquez-Cognet University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

 

This module on Interactive Lectures provides strategies and specific examples of techniques and activities designed to involve students in large and small lecture-based classes. The module is designed for the instructor who does not want to replace lecture, but rather to enhance and punctuate lecture to create an interactive classroom experience."

Interactive lectures can increase student engagement with course material and facilitate learning. In traditional lectures, the majority of class time is devoted to the instructor’s delivery of information. During interactive lectures, the instructor interrupts the lecture to allow time for short activities.
These activities can take on many forms as discussed later, but they are important in that they allow students to use material learned in class and contribute to their own learning.During lecture breaks, the instructor poses a question or problem that promotes students to actively work with the concepts learned in class. Because learners tend to retain information based on their involvement in the learning process, transforming students from passive receivers of information into active users of information leads to increases in student retention of material.
The idea of incorporating activities within lecture time is often met with the criticism that it wastes time that could be used to cover additional course material. However, sustained lectures that exceed the typical attention span of 10-20 minutes do not ensure that the material is actually reaching students. In fact, students record in their notes a greater percentage of material from short lecture segments than they do from longer lectures. Many of the activities described below take only a few minutes to implement, but still provide important learning opportunities for students.Another benefit of using activities within lectures is that it can create a feedback loop for instructors to get information about student learning earlier than the exam or major assignment date. Seeing students struggle with an activity can be the stimulus for the instructor to review important concepts related to that activity.
In recent years, the lecture has fallen on hard times.
Prominent researchers have raised doubts about its use, claiming that lectures rely on rote learning and fail to promote active engagement. Yet most of us have either attended or delivered wonderful lectures—lectures that have expanded our thinking, provided fresh insights, or opened our eyes to new worlds. Clearly, lectures can be an efficient way of transmitting large amounts of information in a relatively small amount of time.
