Teaching & Learning

Types of EL


Internships can be part of a course or may constitute independent experiences and exist as credit as well as non-credit bearing modules. They are designed to let students experience first hand a specific professional context over a prolonged period of time. There are ample possibilities for internships in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, as well as in Comparative Literature, Fine Arts (Humanities), Language and communication studies (English) and Translation studies (Chinese).

Field-trips can occur over one afternoon or last several weeks. Field-trips provide an exciting and engaging way to put into use the knowledge acquired during a course of study. During a field-trip students naturally combine work with pleasure as they engage in meaningful ways with every day realities through the lenses of their discipline. The School of Humanities and the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, among others, have a rich tradition of field-trips to North America, Europe, West Africa and several Asian destinations.

Workshops are courses which combine a strong element of practical skills in addition to theoretical concerns and incorporate brief field-trips as well as on-site teaching in their syllabi. Examples of workshop teaching can be found in Fine Arts and History (Humanities), as well as in the Centre of Buddhist Studies and Centre of Applied English Studies.
