1. Understanding of a variety of techniques for evaluating materials;
2. Understanding of the principles from which these techniques derive;
3. Ability to evaluate teaching/learning materials;
4. Ability to analyse tasks and the components of which they are composed;
5. Ability to adapt materials in a variety of ways;
6. Ability to select and devise texts and tasks to supplement published materials;
7. Understanding of key issues in the layout of text-based materials;
8. Ability to involve learners in materials evaluation and design;
9. Ability to evaluate current research issues in evaluation and design of TESOL materials.
|There are two parts to the assessment. The students:
a) make a proposal for materials adaptation/design
b) evaluate these materials.
- their materials, or a representative section of them;
- the materials evaluation that they carried out;
- a rationale for the materials design and the evaluation;
- a statement of what they have learnt by carrying out these tasks;
- a statement of how the materials and design relate to current research issues in evaluation and design of TESOL materials.
The assignment is 5,000 words in length.
