Signing up for Seminars
The EFL education team presents a new procedure for allocating remaining seminar seats to those students who did not get a spot. If you have not been allocated a place in the seminar during the official registration period on LSF, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the following information: your name, your matriculation number and the seminar(s) you would like to attend. Please mention more than one seminar if possible and make sure to prioritize them.
As such, please refrain from contacting EFL-lecturers individually; instead send your request to this central email address.
The EFL education department is concerned with the teaching and learning of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in schools. During their studies, student teachers gain fundamental knowledge and skills for teaching EFL in various schools: primary, secondary as well as vocational education. Core issues of the curriculum are communicative language teaching, language learning theory, methods and approaches to EFL education, digitalization, diversity and inclusion. All classes in our department are committed to the idea of nurturing the reflective practitioner as well as encouraging continuous professional development.
Our research is committed to school-based EFL education and teacher development. In particular, we are dedicated to linking our evidence-based research with practical classroom teaching. All our research projects follow an interdisciplinary approach and are conducted in collaboration with colleagues from related disciplines. The focus of our current research projects are: EFL education at primary and secondary level, digital media in language education, inclusive EFL education, professional development of EFL teachers, multilingualism, content and language integrated learning, and literature and film in EFL education.
