English Teaching Methodology

Hybrid-format seminars focused on TEFL methodology

Now with the title "Bridging the Epistemic Gap between Linguistics, Literature, and Pedagogy: Transnational Perspectives and Intercultural Practices" the hybrid seminars continue in WS2023/24.

We welcome all interested parties to join us for a series of Hybrid-format Workshops and Academic Impulse Speeches on the 23rd and 24th of October 2023!

Under conditions of war in Ukraine, there is an urgent need for sustainable development of current and further academic cooperation between German and Ukrainian Universities. This Symposium is a first step to foster effective collaboration in the fields of linguistics, literature, and pedagogy.
The Ukrainian Universities in exile (Vasyl’ Stus Donetsk National University (DonNU), Mariupol State University (MSU), and frontline higher educational institutions - Zaporizhzhia Polytechnic National University (ZPNU) and Zaporizhzhia National University (ZNU) were chosen as partners for this international academic project launched by JMU and funded by BAYHOST in terms of Mobility Grants 2023.

First steps in 2022...

As part of a newly established German-Ukrainian cooperation, two pre-Christmas hybrid seminars (2022) between students from Julius Maximilian University and Zaporizhzhya National Polytechnic University focused on TEFL methodology.

On 21 December, future EFL teachers had the perfect opportunity to discuss multi-perspective representations of cultures through different texts and media forms.

The second workshop took place on 23 December 2022 and was based on inclusion, differentiation and individualisation in EFL teaching.

We would like to thank the students and colleagues who actively participated in these two meetings! It was a good starting point.

We are already looking forward to further cooperations in the future.
