Information from the course co-ordinator

Welcome to KPU, ENG522, and the department of English studies!
My name is Susanne Greés and I will be the course coordinator for this term and also your instructor for the first module of English didactics. I can be contacted on Susanne.grees@hig.se. The course will run for two terms with a total of 30 credits, with 20 credits in the autumn term.

The structure for the autumn term is as follows:

0010 English Didactics 6 cr, weeks 43-46
0020 Placement for Teaching Practice 10 cr, weeks 47-51
0030 Language Structure with a Didactic Focus 4 cr, weeks 52-03

There will be one day of on campus teaching for the didactic module in week 41 on Wednesday October 9, 9-15 in room 51:219 with more information on Canvas prior to this day.
The seminars for the English Didactics module will be on Tuesdays, 10-12.

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 compulsory education, years 7-9 or upper-secondary education.
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 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. Following is a list of the course literature that you will need. For the first module, English didactics, you will need Lightbown & Spada, Lundahl, Oshima & Hogue and Skolverket´s publications, you can find the full litterature list with the course's syllabus.

You will be automatically registered on Canvas when you register on the course. This is our main channel for communication and where you will find material about our course such as the timetable, instructions, assignments, etc. This is also where the different instructors will post general announcements concerning the course and the individual sessions. Therefore, check the course Canvas page regularly.

If you need support with any technical issues concerning Canvas, contact the support service through studentsupport@hig.se.

Since our course is digitally based it means that we will not meet physically, except the on campus seminar on October 9. 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 do the plagiarism quiz on Canvas before the start of the course.
