Please register on Stud.IP:
You select a course of your choice and apply for participation. Your lecturer will either accept or reject your application, depending on the number of students permitted to take one class. The registration process is complete, when you receive a confirmation email. Courses offered in the winter term are available in our online course programme from July 30th onwards. Courses offered in the summer term are available from December 30th.

Comment:
This registration process supports students and faculty members alike. For health and safety reasons the number of students who may register for one course is in some cases limited due to room size. Early registration therefore allows students to make alternative arrangements, i.e. to select another course of their choice before the start of the lecture period.
Registration for Academic Exchange students (Erasmus, Free Mover, international students):
We would like to advice academic exchange students to register for courses via Email. Please identify the relevant faculty member or lecturer and send your email registration request directly to the faculty member offering the course you wish to join.

The aim of the seminar is to provide insights into foreign language acquisition at universities through research-based learning. We will first discuss different theoretical approaches to foreign language learning as well as aspects of learning theory (e.g. learner personality, affective factors) and specifics of language learning and teaching in adulthood/ higher education. Against the background of these theoretical basics, the participants develop research projects, carry them out at the Fremdsprachenzentrum Bremen (FZHB) and present their results in the seminar.

10-M80-2-ExMo2-02Tourism and Transnational Film (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Tue. 12:15 - 13:45 GW2 B2900

Starting with an exploration of critical approaches to tourism and tourist films in a transnational world we will analyze contemporary narrative films and how they construct and exploit touristic fantasies. We will critically examine narrative tropes such as postcolonial encounters, romantic entanglements and sexual adventures; we will assess the consumer-oriented aesthetics of these films; and moreover, we will reflect on the particular ideologies that come into play when the tourist experience becomes the focus of a filmic text.
Essential readings will be available for download on Stud-IP. You should also consult the 'Semesterapparat' (SuUB) for further readings.
Please note that prior enrollment via Stud.IP is mandatory.

In the current area of increasing migration, foreign language learning is gaining momentum, as ac-quiring the target language is widely understood as one means to enable newly arrived migrants integration and participation. In the seminar, we will examine recent research and practical projects to enhance our understanding of the role language proficiency can play in the process of integra-tion. We will also explore “best practice” examples to understand the conditions under which lan-guages in immigration contexts can successfully be taught and acquired.
Within the realm of language teaching and learning, language tests are coming under scrutiny, as they are used and abused as gate keeping devices and as policy instruments to regulate entry and access. We will critically discuss ethical implications of different kinds of language test use. By re-viewing recent research projects and studies, we will deepen our understanding of the purposes language tests could and should serve in integration and migration contexts in order to ensure fair-ness, justice and ethical values.
You will have the opportunity to become familiar with current research and teaching projects in my working group and at the language centre. You will also have the chance to explore a relevant as-pect of your choice in more depths and present your findings in the seminar.

10-E76-4-FD MEd-01Case Studies (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Wed. 14:15 - 15:45 External location: GW1 C1070 External location: GW2 A4020 (2 Credit hours)

Dieses Seminar ist verpflichtend für alle Studierenden, die ihre Masterarbeit (M. Ed.) im Fach Englisch abfassen. Beachten Sie bitte, dass dieser verpflichtende zweite Teil des Seminars nur im SoSe 2015 angeboten wird (als Forsetzung des ersten Teils aus dem vorangehenden WS).
Dieses Seminar befasst sich mit der Analyse und Evaluation aktueller Forschungsliteratur im Bereich der Fremdsprachenforschung; in diesem akademischen Jahr liegt dabei ein Schwerpunkt auf der Methodologie des Design-Based Research. Das Seminar ist als Grundlage zur Begleitung der eigenen empirischen Studie im Rahmen der Masterarbeit konzipiert. Durch eine intensive Betrachtung der gängigen Forschungsmethoden und ihrer Umsetzung in bereits veröffentlichten Studien werden eine Reflexion über Sprachlernprozesse sowie die Förderung logischen und kritischen Denkens angeregt und das Eintauchen in die Hintergründe der Fremdsprachenforschung ermöglicht. Im Seminar sollen Studierende lernen, ihre Erfahrungen mit der Untersuchung neuerer Forschungsarbeiten im Sinne einer Entwicklung zum reflective practitioner als Basis für ihre eigene Lehrkompetenz im Fach Englisch zu begreifen. Deswegen beschäftigen wir uns im Seminar vorrangig mit der Interpretation von Erkenntnissen aus der Fremdsprachenforschung und ihrer Relevanz für die eigene Forschung im Rahmen der Masterarbeit sowie die (spätere) eigene Unterrichtspraxis.

10-76-4-D2-02Key Topics in Linguistics: Applied Linguistics (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Wed. 08:15 - 09:45 SFG 1040

Applied linguistics involves „the theoretical and empirical investigation of real-world problems in which language is a central issue“ (Brumfit 1995: 27). In this class, we start with an overview of fields of applied linguistics, and then focus on three of these fields: critical applied linguistics, where we study gossip and teacher talk; the usefulness (or not) of corpora in language teaching; and finally forensic linguistics, the use of language by criminals, in police investigations and in court.
You will get to know the basic theoretical concepts of (critical) applied linguistics. You will test different methods for analyzing language, e.g. manual and automatic analyses of small or large amounts of text. Finally, you will practice your skills as researchers by conducting a study of your own favourite real-world language problem.
Requirements
Homework assignments (reading 10-30 pages each week; possibly some exercises).
