Welcome to English for teachers in grades 4-6, Further Training!
My name is Lisa Johansson and I am the course coordinator for this course. Please contact me if you have any questions about the course (email@example.com).

Teaching will start January 18 at 14.00 on Zoom where we will begin with an introduction and overview of the course as a whole but also introduce our first module; Basic Language Structure and Phonology. There is a set schedule for all modules for Tuesdays between 14.00-16.00.
To participate fully in this course, it is important that you prepare well for the seminars by reading instructed parts of the course literature. You should be able to discuss particular models and issues brought up in the literature rather than topics in general. Therefore, make sure you order the course literature for all modules in good time before the course starts. Remember that you can borrow course literature from the HiG library, and in some cases from a university library closer to your home. The list of literature can be found in the syllabus (course plan) which is part of this welcome letter.
Students attending courses in English at the University of Gävle are required to attend class in order to receive a passing grade. Studying English at our college does not only involve obtaining subject knowledge, but also improving one’s ability to speak and write English, and this can only take place if students meet their teachers and actively participate in the instruction. Furthermore, most modules feature live, face-to-face group work in order to accommodate the general course objective that “students should be able to compare and critically evaluate one’s own and others' work”. Failure to participate in such activities will therefore make it impossible to attain a course objective. For these reasons, we require attendance, with only minor exceptions.
You will be automatically registered on Canvas when you register on the course. This is our digital platform and main channel for communication and this is where you will find material about our course such as the syllabus and schedule, instructions, assignments, etc. This is also where the different instructors will post general announcements concerning the course and the individual sessions. Therefore, check the Canvas course page regularly. You will be able to access the course page on Canvas two weeks before the course starts.
Secondly, since you are to participate in group discussions throughout this course is important that you use a good headset with a microphone instead of the microphone on the computer only. This way you will be able to hear us and we can hear you much better. 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 includes seminars where you are to participate in discussions.
The links to the Zoom meeting rooms will be found under each module folder in Canvas.
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 this disclaimer carefully before the beginning of the course; print it, sign it, make a copy/take a picture, and upload it to Canvas under 'Assignments'.
The course is given by the Faculty of Education and Business Studies.
