Icelandic Online 5 is a new addition to the Icelandic Online webcourse. The main objective of this advanced course is to enhance learner‘s cultural literacy through the reading of Icelandic literary texts. IOL5 was developed at the University of Iceland and is a collaboration of the the Faculty of Icelandic and Comparative Cultural Studies, the Vigdís Finnbogadóttur Institute for Foreign Languages, the University of Bergen, the University of Helsinki and the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies. The project was funded by NordPlus Sprog and the participating institutions.
Michael Svendsen Pedersen, Associate Professor at the University of Roskilde in Denmark, will give a lecture on Wednesday October 9th, 2013, at 12:00 in room 131 in Askja at the University of Iceland.More >
The lecture is entitled „ME AND MY LANGUAGE LEARNING - Identity and learning culture in language learning“.
While a communicative approach for decades has been on the agenda of foreign and second language teaching, new insights into the importance of identity and the learning context for the language learning process pose a challenge for communicative language teaching. In this lecture some of these challenges will be investigated based on analysis of data from the teaching of Danish as a second language.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
