Welcome to Lärarlyftet and the department of English studies!
My name is Susanne Greés and I will be the course coordinator for this term, and I can be contacted on Susanne.email@example.com. The course will run for three terms with a total of 45 credits. There is a set schedule for all the modules on Thursdays, 14-16 via Zoom.
The modules for the autumn term of 2022 are as follows:
0010 Language structure, 7 cr weeks 35-44 with Henrik Kaatari
0020 Written communication, 5 cr weeks 45-49 with Susanne Greés
0030 World English, 3r weeks 50-02 with Marko Modiano
Subject didactics, 10 cr
Field studies, 5 cr
Contemporary English literature, 5 cr
Children and youth literature 5 cr
Survey course in linguistics, 5 cr
Teaching occurs to a large extent in seminars where plenty of opportunities for interaction in English are provided. All teaching is in English and aims to encourage discussion and reflection concerning the role and function of English as well as aspects of its application as an educational subject for grades 7 to 9.
To participate fully in our courses it is important that you prepare for the seminars by reading the instructed parts of the course literature. This is obligatory and vital in order to be able to participate in discussing particular models and issues brought up in the literature, rather than discussing topics in general. Therefore it is important that you get hold of the literature well in time for the relevant sessions. If you find it difficult to find a particular title within Sweden, ordering it from an international site, such as www.amazon.co.uk is one suggestion. There you might also be able to find the titles second hand for a good price.
The first meeting takes place in week 35 on Thursday September 1, 14-16 with Language structure and Henrik Kaatari, and the course literature you will need is:
1. Estling Vannestål, Maria (2015). A University Grammar of English with a Swedish Perspective. Lund: Studentlitteratur. sidor: 586
A more detailed study guide will be posted on Canvas two weeks prior to the start of the first module.
In Canvas is where you will find material about our course such as study guides, instructions, assignments, power point presentations etc. This is also where the different instructors will post general announcements concerning the course and the individual sessions.
Since our course is digitally based it means that we will not meet physically. Instead we will meet in our virtual classroom via Zoom. For us all to be able to benefit from a good quality of reception it is recommended that you use broadband and not a wireless connection. It is also important that you use a good headset with a microphone instead of the microphone on the computer only. A good camera is also essential for communicative purposes. Please note that you are expected to use your microphone and camera throughout the course since several of the course modules include seminars where you are to participate in discussions. Unfortunately Ipads and Iphones do not work sufficiently for this activity.
The links to the Zoom-rooms will be posted on Canvas. You click on the link and follow the instructions to the classroom. Participation in these sessions via Zoom is an essential part of the course. Even though we do not meet physically you shall think of it as equivalent to classroom teaching which means that an active contribution is beneficial for everyone.
Cheating and plagiarizing are serious academic offences, which result in failing the module in question and being reported to the college’s disciplinary commission. To learn about plagiarism and get basic information on how to avoid it, please read the plagiarism disclaimer carefully on Canvas before the beginning of the course; print it, sign it, make a copy/take a picture, and upload it to Canvas.
The course is given by the Faculty of Education and Business Studies.
Registration for exams, including re-takes, is mandatory. You can register for exams via Ladok. You need to register at least ten days before the exam date.
