Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education
Version produced : 30 December 2013


This course introduces students to principles of course design and looks at a number of frameworks for development of language teaching/learning material. The course will look at the inter-relationships between theory of language, theory of learning, aims of syllabi, the social and personal contexts of student learning. It will also examine a number of different frameworks within which syllabus design is embedded and which determine the ways materials might be developed. Students will also be introduced to issues in language assessment as a way of evaluating the effectiveness of a course. Students will be asked to prepare a "course of work" based on principles encountered in the program, to teach the course to a group of learners and to evaluate the success of their course of work.
