Innovations in Languages for Specific Purposes - Innovations en Langues sur Objectifs Spécifiques

Present Challenges and Future Promises - Défis actuels et engagements à venir


Edited By Magdalena Sowa and Jaroslaw Krajka

The papers collected in this book present diverse views and experiences on teaching English and French for specific and academic purposes. The scope of reflection covers a wide spectrum of cognitive areas of ESP and FOS, encompassing a multitude of training aspects and components (curricula, methods and techniques, materials and teaching aids) from the perspective of both LSP teachers and learners. A great range of topics related to work-specific language instruction addressed in the book displays the interdisciplinary nature of the research area, integrating aspects of linguistics, sociolinguistics, didactics and pedagogy.

Les textes réunis dans le présent volume exposent les idées et expériences relatives à l’enseignement de l’anglais et du français sur objectifs spécifiques et universitaires. Les sujets de réflexion ici abordés couvrent un vaste éventail d’aspects cognitifs et organisationnels (curricula, méthodes et techniques, matériels et outils) propres aux formations en ESP et FOS, ceux-ci envisagés dans la perspective des apprenants et des enseignants. La diversité d’éléments inhérents à la formation linguistico-professionnelle discutés par des didacticiens-chercheurs éminents témoigne du caractère interdisciplinaire du domaine d’investigation LSP qui intègre les points de vues des linguistes, sociolinguistes, didacticiens et pédagogues.

Peer assessment of group members in tertiary contexts

Abstract: The current chapter aimed at investigating language students’ perceptions of peer assessment of the group members’ contribution to group work. The research context of the study included the department of foreign language education at a state university in Burdur, Turkey. The participants were 35 students enrolled at the third-year class entitled ‘Teaching Language Skills I’, aiming at helping students further their understanding of the theories and principles on which various language teaching methods are based. The data were collected through the semi-structured interviews conducted with the participants, who were asked to assess their group members based on the rating scale determined by the researcher. The overall findings from this small study support the use of self- and peer assessment in group work in tertiary contexts. However, the results also indicated that friendship bias and lack of training/experience played an important role in how the participants rated their group members.
