Course organisation and communication

This course consists of an individual research project or degree thesis. There will be an introductory seminar on Zoom in January where you will be assigned a supervisor. Time and date for the introduction will be posted on Canvas.

Please note that the topic of your degree thesis is chosen in consultation with your supervisor but that you should be prepared to present at least one suggestion in the introductory seminar. To find a suitable topic, read a multitude of studies and research literature in English Didactics and try to find an area that interests you. Also, to prepare for the course, please make sure you have read all parts of the welcome letter, including the course plan and literature list. We recommend that you order the course literature in good time before the course starts.

You will be expected to follow a schedule with set deadlines for drafts of chosen sections of your thesis. Your supervisor will read and comment on your drafts, but it is important to remember that you should work with a high degree of independence throughout the research process. These are full-time studies, and you must be prepared to devote a lot of time and effort to your degree thesis.

It is important that you log onto Canvas in good time before the course starts, since this will be our main channel for communication. This is where you will find material about our course such as the timetable, instructions and recorded lectures. This is also where the course coordinator will post general announcements concerning the course. The email client will be used to send individual messages when necessary. Therefore, check the course page and your email regularly.
