We are glad to invite you to a UGC sponsored two-day National Seminar on English Language Teaching – Problems and Strategies organized by the Post-Graduate Department of English, Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar on 25th and
26th February 2011.
The seminar is structured around the question: Why can’t our students use English? Let we, all teachers, come on a common platform:
-To diagnose in detail why the ongoing English teaching programmes at board and university levels are missing the mark and the learners in English classes do not acquire the skills they are supposed to.
-To discuss thoroughly what needs to be done primarily in terms of methods, curricula and time-amount to make the teaching of English result oriented.
-To search out a viable evaluation mechanism which discourages English to be a content subject and encourages it to be a skill subject.
-To find out the ways by which literary texts can be used fruitfully for English language teaching. Specifically speaking, to explore how literary texts can be taught as cultural texts so that the learners can feel the text as alive, a part of their daily experiences, a real life situation whose characters they are familiar with and often hear speaking around them.
-To think over and reach at the ways by which texts of popular culture i.e. popular literature, magazines, advertisements, films etc. can be used to make learning of English an interesting stress-free, real and next-to-door experience.
-To explore how information technology can be used to facilitate learning of English.
1. Diagnosing ailments in the prevailing English Teaching Programmes
2. Curriculum Development: A thought for Literary texts, texts of Popular Culture and Information Technology
3. Words and Grammar for Discourse: Their role and Teaching Strategies
4. Methods for teaching English in general and for Specific Purposes
5. Making Evaluation System really Evaluative: Means and Measures
Kindly join hands with us in this endeavor and help us to sensitize the academic fraternity regarding this dire need of the society.
We pledge to make your stay at Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar cozy, fruitful and unforgettable.
In hope to get your company for both the days.
