Constructionist Experiential Learner-Enhanced Teaching in English for Academic Purposes

Dietmar Tatzl

This book offers a macrostrategy for teaching English as a foreign language to students in tertiary degree programmes. This teaching strategy has been developed from various methodological currents in higher education and language didactics. The volume provides inspiration, ideas and practical examples for ESP and EAP professionals anywhere in the world and hopes to motivate learners across disciplines. It takes subject-specific requirements into consideration and is a methodology handbook open to the diversity of EAP teaching contexts. It may serve as a textbook in applied linguistics, English studies and teacher education.

Appendix B: Students’ Selected Technical English Learning Logs

This section contains two technical English learning logs written by students between October and December 2012. The logs have not been teacher corrected, but slight adaptations to format and layout have been made for this publication. This assignment asked student authors to provide their own definitions and sample sentences related to the terms in the log, yet the teacher did not have the means to verify students’ original authorship, except for a Google search of the given wording. In cases where such searches resulted in a hit, the respective reference was added by the teacher. Despite warnings against the use of Wikipedia® entries for definitions and sample sentences, some hits returned such entries, which were either deleted from the log or replaced by a different source that contained the same wording. The names of student authors in the sub-headings are pseudonyms. These records have been selected from a total of 33 learning logs submitted in the framework of this CELET assignment. Students gave their written permission for the publication of these logs.
