RATIONALE

This course is of paramount relevance for in-service teachers since it allows them to explore some theories concerning the processes involved in language acquisition and learning. Through the selected reading materials and practical application workshops, teachers will develop an awareness of those factors that may facilitate or hinder language learning, and consequently they will be able to take courses of action that help them establish the basis for a more effective teaching practice.

General objective
To set the grounds for the analysis and reflection about the theoretical aspects concerning
language acquisition and learning

Specific objectives
\u2022
To critically approach the different theories about language acquisition and learning, by
contrasting and comparing them to their daily experience in the classroom.
\u2022
To identify aspects such as, individual differences and learning styles as potential
facilitators in the language learning process.
\u2022
To develop micro research projects, in order to confront theory to practice.
\u2022
To assume critical and reflective positions Vis _a _vis the theory consulted, by means of
the elaboration of academic papers that support or challenge it.
\u2022
To use the theories and concepts seen in the course as contributing materials to the
development of the final research project.
Methodology

As most of the courses in our TEFL Graduate program, we will embrace the seminar technique
which compels participants to profusely read before each session, so that class time may be
devoted to clarifications and practical applications.
