Language and Learning: Functional Linguistics across the Curriculum
In this seminar teachers study language in learning. The unit gives guided analysis of how teachers and students develop content knowledge with spoken and written texts. Participants examine the texts and the selection of wording or lexicogrammar which constitute subjects. The text analysis is based on functional linguistics and applied to specific curriculum contexts. The unit is a practical foundation for the explicit teaching of texts to develop students’ language resources for the study of subjects. The unit is designed for primary, secondary and higher education teachers who want to learn about current developments in language and literacy as part of a professional pathway in education.

Design TESOL curriculum, lessons and materials (GDTDES802)
In this seminar students study the design of curriculum as the foundation for advanced study in teaching language. The focus is on the development of skills and knowledge for the study and analysis of TESOL instruction in classroom contexts. Students apply techniques to study effective instruction, analyse curriculum and textbooks,* and evaluate teaching and testing programs. The subject applies to teaching languages in primary, secondary and tertiary classes.
