Language Teaching Methods

Fall 2019

Taught By: Marie-Christine Masse

Section: A

CRN: 7169

Credits: 3

This course offers an introduction to the pedagogies of teaching languages (other than English) by surveying approaches, methods, and teaching materials. The course begins with a brief history of language teaching methods and then more closely engages with practical concepts related to teaching and learning languages. Students will explore the most recent trends in language teaching methodologies, in particular task-based approaches and uses of technology. Students will draw connections between theory and practice by reflecting on their own learning experiences and teaching exercises done in class. This course is designed for both undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in teaching, or teaching practitioners who would like to further hone their skills in. This in-person course will include a few online meeting sessions. No prerequisite. For English language teaching, see NELT 0411, Methods and Techniques for Teaching ELLs.
