LRM63 Practicum

The course module LRM63 (Practicum) provides participants in the Language Education for Refugees and Migrants (LRM) programme with practical teaching experience in actual classes for people with a refugee or migration background. Participants are placed in formal education contexts (e.g., schools in the state education system) or informal learning settings (e.g., language classes run by NGOs), where they design and implement a sequence of lessons. The course carries 20 ECTS credits, and it is the culmination of the LRM, in which participants apply the knowledge and skills that they acquired over the course of their studies.

Structure of LRM63

The course is divided in three phases: During Phase A, participants familiarise themselves with the teaching context where they have been placed, conduct classroom observations in order to understand the particularities of the setting and the learners’ needs, and design their intervention. During Phase B, participants implement their intervention, by teaching the lessons sequence they had planned and reflecting on the experience. Finally, in Phase C, they reflect on their teaching placement and prepare a report which is submitted for evaluation.

Course participants are expected to work with a high degree of autonomy, and are supported throughout by an academic tutor. In addition, three plenary sessions (tutor-student meetings) take place at regular intervals, in order to share experiences and provide coordination and guidance.
