Course design (Collection 2 of 7)

The activities in this collection provide opportunities for English lecturers (and others) to experiment and think creatively about the modules you currently teach or ones you may teach in the future. Some activities utilise videos of colleagues who have successfully designed whole programmes and individual modules. There are also worksheets and documents that you can download and modify.

Designing a creative-critical module

The activities in this resource are built around an audio-recording in which English lecturers Dr Chris Thurgar-Dawson (University of Teesside) and Professor Ben Knights (English Subject Centre) discuss a module they launched and taught on ‘creative criticism.’ The activities provide examples and contexts for re-thinking and designing new modules by experimenting with varying emphases on 'creative' and 'critical' content and teaching methods. Even if you do not adopt the ideas presented, they might stimulate you to think about module planning from a different angle.

Mapping and applying desirable student attributes

These activities are for English lecturers interested in developing their pedagogical skills in accord with the skills they would like their students to acquire. Both the individual and group activity are focused on the use of a stimulating list of 'desirable student attributes' such as having the patience to read long novels. How exactly are you hoping to affect your students' behaviour when you teach them? Obviously, you want them to attend classes and submit assessments, but what of more interesting, subtle practices? What intellectual, organisational, aesthetic qualities would you like your teaching to encourage? The argument of the activities in this resource is that thinking about possible answers to these questions is an excellent first step towards a reconceptualisation of your role as a lecturer.

Adapting a module

There are three different types activities in this resource each of which are drawn from literature teaching but which are adaptable to other subjects. In one you are provided with a full module description and asked how it might need to be modified for particular teaching contexts, such as whether it is a final year ‘option’ course, or a compulsory first year course. In the next activity, ‘Pacing it out’ you are challenged to halve the number of texts studied on a module and adapt your teaching approach accordingly. The third type of activity addresses ‘Curriculum Framing’ and asks you to consider the pedagogical contexts for teaching particular texts.

Filling the gaps

The premise of the activities in this resource (appropriate for an individual or a group) is that the time that students spend between lectures, seminars and workshops is as important as the time they spend in class sessions because this is how and where students develop the critical ability to work independently. However, students, especially first-years, need to be taught these skills and these activities provide guidance on how you might go about that work with methods that that push beyond the well-worn phrase, ‘read the book and think about it.’

Designing an innovative English Literature module

The activities in this resource are focused around an interview with Dr Hannah Crawforth (King's College London) about her design and launch of an innovative English Literature module, 'Shakespeare's London'. The activities, which are appropriate for individuals or groups, encourage you to think about how you might re-design and run old modules in new ways or launch new modules which draw students in with new features. The activities cover how one might take advantage of the location of your university (e.g. the local landscape or historic sites); how one might develop students’ research skills, and how one might ask relevant reflective questions about an existing module with a view towards revising and improving it.

Designing an English degree programme

There are three types of activities, appropriate for English lecturers working in groups or as individuals, in this resource. Their topics are employability, transition from A level, and getting the ‘delicate balance’ right between literature, language and Creative Writing when designing an English programme for today’s students. These activities rely in part on an interview with Professor Marion Wynne-Davies (University of Surrey). As Head of Department, Wynne-Davies shares the ideas and strategies she followed to launch the Surrey English degree programme in 2008.

These activities offer lecturers the opportunity to apply and enrich their understanding of the seminar in a concrete way. By treating an example of a seminar as a text, they open up a number of questions about the dynamic of the seminar process. There is also an overview of the activities.

Seminar design

Two exercises on seminar planning designed for use by English lecturers seeking to develop their skills. One activity is for use by an individual lecturing working alone; the other is for use in a group setting. These activities are designed to stimulate thought about the forms and processes of small group teaching, suggesting ways in which a lecturer or tutor might move mentally between preparing their curriculum or content knowledge and their developing insight into how people learn in groups. There is also an overview of the activities.

Peer reviewing lectures

There are three activities in this resource, and they have been created around actual lectures delivered by staff at Royal Holloway, University of London, King’s College London and the University of Nottingham. Each lecture demonstrates different approaches to lecturing. The peer review activities are designed to prompt individuals or groups to begin thinking critically about what makes a good lecture/lecturer and what tools and tasks can help make a particular lecture more or less successful.

Planning and evaluating your lecture

There are two activities in this collection and both encourage you to be able to make a conscious shift between content (what you want to get across) and the dramatic and affective form through which you are going to have to perform it. The activities are appropriate for individuals or groups and comprise peer review work as well as an opportunity to think of the lecture as a genre. One activity utilises video footage of Dr Hannah Crawforth (King’s College London), who discusses lectures as a form of rhetoric. The other activity asks that you attend a colleague’s lecture, record yourself giving a lecture, or use a video of someone else’s lecture as a starting point.

Feedback shortcuts for assessing writing

Here is a set of comments I use frequently when giving feedback to students. It's designed for EFL writers with an English level equivalent to IELTS 5.5 or above. The links are to sites I regularly use in teaching, and the recommended books are available in my university library. Feel free to adapt according to your students' level, needs and available resources. There are different ways you could exploit the comments set: 1. (on paper) as a cover sheet when returning written work. 2. (in Microsoft Word) as the basis for creating AutoText entries, which you can quickly insert into Comments when reviewing electronic copies of your students' work. 3. (in Turnitin) as the basis for creating a QuickMark set in GradeMark. I've appended the .qms file so if you're already a Grademark user you can download then import it into your own Quickmark library and modify as appropriate.

Los miserables

Spanish writer Juan Ramón Barat reflects upon the aftermath of the Lorca Earthquake of 11 May 2011, which brought down many buildings in this historical city and caused several casualties. In this literary and social piece, distributed to the public on the 18th of May 2011, Barat points at the lack of business ethics in the construction business as one of the reasons behind the destruction caused by the earthquake. This is a good text for those interested in contemporary social, economic and political issues in Spain, as it relates very well to some of the demands and criticisms aired by campaigners of the so-called "Spanish Revolution" of the 15th of May 2011.

The Utopian years? Radical left movements in Pompidou's france

This half day conference, organised by Dr Manus McGrogan at the University of Portsmouth on 12 May 2011, uncovered the trajectories of some of the movements that emerged in early 1970s France, helping to define the radical left politics of the era. This was the aftermath of May ‘68’s mass upheaval, when France, in the grip of student riots and a general strike, had seemed on the verge of revolution. May’s utopian dimension, embodied in slogans such as ‘sous les pavés la plage’ and ‘prenez vos désirs pour la réalité’, held the promise of a world transformed in which each could pursue their own desires, a powerful spur to thousands of young activists, students and workers. The mass revolt of May had also shown that collective action could change the world. These impulses, shaped subsequently by political, socio-cultural and international events, combined to generate new, youth-inflected gender/sexual liberation movements, independent immigrant organisation, ecology groups, underground press, and other movements that were linked to, or autonomous of left political organisation. However, activists also had to contend with a Gaullist State that tentatively introduced reforms, whilst clamping down on the hard left ‘troublions’ still agitating for popular revolt. Intervention in the workers movement also proved problematic given the PCF/CGT dominance in the major workplaces. President Georges Pompidou, on a path of modernising France, perpetuated the social conservatism of his predecessor de Gaulle; faced with these barriers, activists of the Mouvement de Mai sought to merge political radicalism with the cultural underground to fashion an alternative France, as a May-inspired slogan intoned, changer la vie. But what happened to this surge of hope for change? Five academics presented papers on important aspects of this early 1970s radicalism, with the participation of students and lecturers from similar disciplines. They considered the origins and development of the new movements, their significance within Pompidou’s France; the interrelationship of movements, and finally their resonance, or relevance in the France of today. The conference was also part of the undergraduate programme in French History and was generously supported by the LLAS subject centre. The exam was based on the themes developed during the conference.

Alien Ink Graphic Novel

Alien Ink is the first in a series of online graphic novels designed to tackle everyday teen issues, and provides a great resource of PSHE/ citizenship and media studies teachers keystage 3, 4 and higher. It is based around the lives of Trinity and Ryder, who curiously arrive in Camden at the same time as UFO sightings on Primrose Hill, and subsequently open a tattoo parlour that becomes a hang-out for local teens. See more at: http://www.alienink.co.uk Alien Ink raises a series of teen pressures, including relationship issues, sexual health and drug use, through the popular and accessible medium of graphic novels. Readers can interact with the comic via Facebook, MySpace, quiz apps, YouTube and the Pressure blog, and are encouraged to get involved in the Alien Ink world, discussing the issues raised or by submitting examples of their own creativity, be it artwork, graphic design, writing, poetry, or even their own tattoo design. Alien Ink will also be available to view on Facebook and, in a partially animated format, on YouTube. The comics are a great way to reach teens with stories that matter and to point them to information that will genuinely help. New chapters appear every week, with all chapters eventually available in a hardback in autumn 2010.

Virtual Dutch Self-Study Packs

These study packs aim to introduce you to Dutch language, literature, history and society. They will also help you improve your reading skills in Dutch. You can listen to the text, study its vocabulary, sentence structures and cultural background. There is background information about the authors and their work. Once you feel you can read and understand the texts, you can move on to analysis of some of their literary aspects. When you have finished the study packs you should have a sense of the kind of writers they were and feel ready to read more of their work. There are sets of questions on the text. They start easy, and gradually become more difficult. You can answer them at any stage to see how far you get. The study packs provide answers and suggestions for finding relevant information. You can print out your first try so that you can compare it with your answers when you have completed the study packs. It is not necessary to study the different parts of the packs in any particular order – allow yourself to be guided by what you want to know. You can browse all packs according to subject, level and language or view them in a competence grid. Most packs exist in a Dutch and in an English version. You are also invited to provide us with feedback on your experience with the study packs. Enjoy!

Amsterdam Represented: A Taster in Cultural Studies

The concept cultural studies is rather complex. To begin with the word 'culture' itself means different things to different people, such as great works of art and literature, or works of popular culture, such as pop songs and soap operas, or the way that particular groups of people live their everyday lives. Generally, when you talk about cultural studies as a subject at university it is not so much about another culture, but it has more to do with a particular way of looking at the world in which people live, and how and why people think, produce and do the things they think, produce and do. This self-study pack offers an introduction to cultural studies, using representations of Amsterdam as an illustration. The material assumes no knowledge of Dutch.

Lettre adressée à M. Deixonne par un instituteur breton (1948)

Until the Deixonne Law (1951) (see attached document), the status of regional languages in France had been rather precarious. Suspicion that regional languages hindered the propagation of progressive ideas and favoured separatist tendencies was rife among left-wing republicans. In this letter, a primary school teacher explained how the love of Breton is not incompatible with the love of France and how pedagogically the use of Breton is a tremendous tool to achieve a higher degree of fluency and accuracy in French. The letter is addressed to Maurice Deixonne, who was in charge to draft the legislative proposal which led to the formal, but limited, recognition of regional languages in 1951. The original letter can be found in OURS (Office Universitaire de Recherche Socialiste, Paris), the French Socialist Party’s private archives (web link included here). Final year and MA students may find this original document useful to discuss, evaluate and revisit the complex relations between French republicanism and cultural minorities.

Virtual Reality and John Fowles' "The Magus"

Literature and the computer generated three–dimensional landscape are the possibilities in which all our wishes can be fulfilled:we can see ourselves from the outside, adopt a new identity, be able to modify the environment through either verbal commands or physical gestures, see creative thoughts instantly materialized without having them for real. While reading, one gets “immersed” and experiences a virtual reality effect. It is similar to using a head-mounted display or a data-glove.

The concept of enkekalymenos in Fowles' "The Magus"

The Freudian idea that art bridges the gap between the pleasure principle and the reality principle also states that behind the “known”, behind that “veil” or that set of veils set by the writer, the analyst will find the “secret”, the drives that secretly urged the artist sublimate his driven-back feelings.

Tirailleurs Sénégalais and the First Word War: memory and commemoration

This resource includes a reproduction of a 1923 monument commemmorating the Tirailleurs Sénégalais who fought for France during the First World War. The original of this monument was erected in Reims and destroyed by the Germans in 1940. An exact copy used to be displayed in Bamako (Mali) but is not currently on public display. This small-scale reproduction may be viewed at the Musée des Forces Armées in Dakar (Senegal) This resource also includes the reproduction of a certificate awarded to a Tirailleurs Sénégalais batallion, in recognition of its bravery in battle during the First World War. The website: www.tirailleursenegalais.com, is very interesting in the way that it rehabilitates the tirailleurs into a national narrative ('batisseurs du monde libre') but of course completely glosses over the fact that many tirailleurs also fought for France in its two wars of decolonisation in Indochina and Algeria.

Remembering the Colonial Past in France and Africa

Once France’s sub-Saharan African colonies became independent in 1960, African troops who had served France loyally both in the world wars and in its wars of decolonization did not fit easily into the official, nationalist narrative of postcolonial African leaders of an African nation united in the struggle against French colonialism. As a result their role and experiences were largely ‘forgotten’ for some forty years after independence. A powerful symbol of this official forgetting is that, as recently as 1999, in France’s oldest African colony Senegal, a French colonial monument originally cast in 1923 to commemorate the role played by African soldiers fighting for France in World War I, was removed to a small cemetery on the outskirts of Dakar because its presence in the centre of the city was considered too redolent of the country’s colonial past. Yet five years later the monument made a great comeback to the city centre after the announcement by the President Wade, in the presence of a plethora of African heads of state of former French colonies, of the creation of a national day to commemorate the tirailleurs. At the same time he also announced that the Senegalese government would henceforth pay an allowance to all Senegalese war veterans still alive on 2 March 2000, in addition to the increase in African war veterans’ pensions recently announced by France. Following this the monument was restored to the centre of the city to become the focal point of a vast commemoration project in which the Place de la Gare was renamed the Place du Tirailleur and designated as a memorial to African soldiers who perished in both world wars.

O Papel do Sacrifício no Candomblé

This podcast in Portuguese was created by Emilia Kroprowska ,a student of Spanish and Latin American Studies at the School of Languages and Area Studies, University of Portsmouth, as a part of a research project entitled ‘The Role of Student Audio Casting and Production in the Language Learning Curriculum’. The podcast was created using Audacity recording software and enhanced with free images using Windows Movie Maker. The recording is based on the student’s own original research carried out in the year 2007 - 2008. The theme is the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé. Ritual sacrifice of animals is a feature of this religion, a practice which is frequently misunderstood by people not familiar with the religion. The recording, based on an interview with a Brazilian practitioner of Candomblé, explains the true significance of this ritual and its meaning within the context of the religion as a whole. The podcast can be used as a learning resource in several different ways: as a focus for discussion, aural comprehension or as a base for further research by students in the field of Lusophone, Brazilian and Latin American studies. A transcript of the podcast is also provided.
