LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Students learn

  • how to develop games and activities for English as a foreign language (EFL) lessons,
  • how to give clear instructions for games and activities in EFL lessons,
  • how to effectively conduct games and activities in EFL lessons,
  • how to critically evaluate games and activities for EFL lessons, and
  • how to reflect on games and activities for EFL lessons.

Lehrmethodik

This course employs a student-centred teaching approach that fosters students' self-regulation and cooperation. In addition to discussing content-specific literature in class, students will engage in pair work and prepare short teaching segments in which they present games and activities. Based on constructive feedback from their peers and the course instructor, students collaboratively revise the presented games and activities and reflect on the teaching process.

Inhalt/e

At the beginning of the semester, group discussions of related literature create a theoretical foundation for this course.

Throughout the semester, students present in pairs three games or activities in class (approximately 20-30 minutes each). The presented games and activities have to belong to one of these categories each:

  • Online learning
  • Board game, card game, or game show
  • Training a specific skill or learning specific content

Each presentation is followed by constructive feedback, which should be taken into account during the revision of and reflection on the activities and games in the term paper.
