What will you learn in the Living Language course? How will it be structured online? And what experience did previous students have?
Third and fourth year undergraduates are invited to join this webinar to ask Living Language co-instructors Drs. Darko Odic and Elise Stickles, and Commerce student Taryn Jessop, who took the course in 2019, any and all the questions you might have, prior to registration opening (for fourth years) on June 23rd.
Living Language: Science and Society is on offer again in September 2020. This interdisciplinary course encourages students to look at how language is used in their own field of work, and apply this knowledge outside the classroom, as well as recognize the influence of language, including when it is used to manipulate rather than inform.
Cross-listed in Applied Science, Forestry, Arts, Pharmaceutical Sciences, LLED, and Land and Food Systems, the course will be heading online, leveraging the virtual format to invite non-local guest speakers, incorporating new technologies into group projects and other assessments, and blending asynchronous and synchronous learning approaches where appropriate.
Join this online Q&A to find out about the co-instructors' plans for 2020, and Taryn's experience of the course.
