LLED521 Interculturality in Language Education: Theories, Research, and Practice Sections

May be offered in multiple languages; consult the department.

Interculturality in Language Education: Theories, Research, and Practice | In education, intercultural understanding has been defined as navigating cultural differences or mélanges, as involving specific kinds of knowledge or savoirs, as developing the capacity for empathy, perspective taking, and adaptability, or as acquired dispositions for engaging with otherness. This course considers interculturality as a means of examining differences of understanding with others, across multiple frames of reference that engage diverse beliefs, values, assumptions, and actions to construct meaning within varying relations of power. The principal aim of the course is to provide teachers and teacher educators with resources to investigate, interrogate, and productively integrate ways of interpreting intercultural processes in their classrooms and beyond. Course content attends to theoretical conceptions of culture and language, historical beginnings of intercultural research, critical and non-Western orientations, and discourse approaches to interculturality. Intercultural learning, teaching, and assessment are considered in classroom and community contexts and digital environments. In keeping with the critical orientation of the course, readings and discussions are supported with examples from the local context with an emphasis on Indigenous knowledges and perspectives.

LLED526 Second Language Assessment: Conceptual and Empirical Approaches Sections

This course will discuss the main conceptual and empirical approaches in second language assessment. It will explore these approaches (various tests and assessment methods) to second language assessment as they relate to various constructs of language ability, language learning/acquisition theories, and context of use of second language. Basic elements of language tests such as authenticity, interactiveness, practicality, impact, as well as construct validity and reliability will be presented and discussed through examples of first and second language tests. Issues to be discussed include, test taker's characteristics and rater's bias, relation between language acquisition and language testing research, decontextualisation of language in tests, the importance of correspondences between language use and language test tasks as well as technology in testing. After this course, students will be ready to explore more in depth philosophical or technical aspects of second language assessment (i.e., psychometrics and creation of tests).

LLED556A Theory and Research in Early Literacy - TH&RES EARLY LIT Sections

LLED558 Literacy and Multimodality Sections

Literacy and Multimodality | Twenty-first Century literacy practices require the ability to “read” and “write” complex texts comprised of multiple modes including linguistic, visual, audial, and gestural. Pedagogical designs must now take into consideration how a range of modalities might contribute to meaning-making alongside and interrelated with, rather than subordinate to, language. In this view, multimodal meaning-making practices in the diverse backgrounds of students must be considered for their educational potential rather than as incidental background to linguistic practices. This interest is broad-based, extends across international borders and linguistic communities. It is driven by more than three decades of research in education, in linguistics and semiotics, and in fields as diverse as internet and communication studies and has led those within the field of language and literacy education to rethink how meaning is made in contemporary classrooms and the world beyond. Topics for this seminar include: literacy and multimodality as social practices; perspectives from New Literacy Studies, multiliteracies, and new literacies; multimodal storytelling; gaming and multimodal learning; rethinking “the basics” in literacy education; multimodality and “funds of knowledge”; multimodality, multilingualism, identity texts, and pedagogical practices; multimodality and ethnography; and visual interpretation and analysis.

LLED565D Special Course in Subject Matter Field - SPC C SUBJ MTFLD Sections

Courses in various subject matter fields designed to bring teachers up to date in recent findings in each field.

Often overlooked as a form of education, dance, song, and chant are for some an entry point to (re)learning and (re)claiming Indigenous languages. This course will demonstrate how dance, song, and chant are embodied practices of language that are deeply embedded traditions in Indigenous cultures. As an introduction, students will engage in language-rich immersion experiences of hula (dance), mele (song), and oli (chant) in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian) that will reveal historical, linguistic, and cultural knowledge. We will also draw upon other Indigenous language experiences and practices that are represented in the class and by guests, and learn how these traditional and contemporary practices not only documents, but contributes to the revitalization and maintenance of Indigenous languages broadly.

LLED565E Special Course in Subject Matter Field - SPC C SUBJ MTFLD Sections

Courses in various subject matter fields designed to bring teachers up to date in recent findings in each field.

Energy Literacy in Educational and Environmental Futures | Energy is one of the most complex and defining issues of our age. Society needs forms of energy to survive, but the most consumed form of fossil fuel energy is not only finite, but also the primary cause of climate change. Without an understanding of the environmental and social impacts of energy use, people cannot fully engage in the development of better practices and policies as students, educators, and citizens. This course overviews basic knowledge about energy systems, while it also highlights how energy functions in cultural, social, and educational contexts. Throughout this course students and educators will learn about basic functions of energy systems (e.g., fossil fuels, solar, hydro), where the sources of energy emerge, social and ecological impacts of energy, and ways of understanding the role of energy in our daily lives. These factors contribute to our ability to communicate about energy and literacy in meaningful ways. Developing energy epistemologies (and pedagogies to support them) enhances the ways we can think and know about our ecological and energy histories and futures. Both quantitative and qualitative methods contribute to energy literacy, but this course emphasizes the need for qualitative approaches in arts and humanities education to augment environmental literacy and sustainability education about energy.

LLED565S Special Course in Subject Matter Field - SPC C SUBJ MTFLD Sections

Courses in various subject matter fields designed to bring teachers up to date in recent findings in each field.

Digital Methods in Literacy Research | This course comprises an overview of the application of digital technology in and as literacy research, while considering possible future directions for methods of data collection and analysis, representation, and knowledge mobilization. We look at how automation of literacy practices compels literacy researchers to adopt new research sites and approaches to findings and their relevance for the future of language and literacy education. Globally, reading and writing practices have shifted in response to new devices and genres of expression, from emoticons and memes to collaborative composition and rapid distribution, and hot topic concerns involving privacy, copyright, identity, ethics and politics. Bridging between qualitative data, natural language processing and other algorithmic processes, a re-envisioning of literacy research is long overdue. Among the topics covered are using voice recognition, automated translation, optical character recognition, online forums, social media and streaming data sources, big data, open data and pre-existing software packages, libraries and databases, data visualization and sonification, data performance, multimedia and arts-based inquiry using digital tools. In each of these areas we will explore digital ethics, anonymity and the means by which information is translated and transmediated into code or scalable values, and how lexicogrammatical topographies of meaning might be crystalized as findings through these processes.
