IGSI Seminar and Practicum is designed to provide language support instruction to IGSI who have shown considerable ability (4 on the screening) in using academic English, but who need additional feedback, evaluation, and suggestions for improvement in their language and communicative skills in the laboratory, classroom or office hour assignments. Participants will be recommended by IGSI workshop coordinators and/or screening evaluators. Individual observations of teaching, with and without video, and consultations are the primary mode of instruction, with individual seminar meeting to discuss issues of concern to all enrolled, such as getting and using mid-semester feedback from students. Emphasis is placed on whatever weaknesses both the IGSI and instructor identify, such as skills and strategies for effective presentations, negotiations, and other interactions with the students and course faculty.

Individual videoing and consultation will take place as well as seminar discussion on appropriate language and culture for the classroom, lab and/or office hour. Emphasis will be improving presentation skills, i.e., effective use of body language, gestures stress intonation, etc. listening and responding skills in the classroom, eliciting and negotiation techniques in the office hours and lab, and general interaction skills needed in the IGSI situation.

This course is designed for doctoral students — and preferably candidates — who wish to compare theire own writing (and speaking) with suitable model texts from their own field.

We will show you how to do this using concordancing software — which is why the class setting is a computer lab. In effect, you will assemple a corpus of your own writing and one of peer writing, then search for similarities and differences, and then learn any lessons that emerge. You will also be using transcripts from the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English (MICASE) in a similar way.

In this process, participants will be receiving individual attention from theinstructors, and will be raising their consciousness about academic communications relevant to them.

The course will end with a "mini-conference" of presentations, in which you wil present, as it were, your own "case studies".

As far as we know, this is the first course of this kind offered anywhere in the world. It is definitely experimental.
