16-Oct-2018 admin Warta FIB

As a form of internationalization, Universitas Brawijaya (UB) launched a 3 in 1 program, which is a collaborative teaching development program between UB lecturers, experts from foreign universities, and practitioners. Students get not only theoretical but also practical learning experience which are contextual and global-minded.

To follow up this policy, Language and Literature Department Faculty of Cultural Studies (FCS) UB invited Prof. Dr. Michael Harrington from University of Queensland Australia to teach several classes in the Study Program of English. Harrington was also involved in several Human Resource Development activities in the Department of Languages and Literature.

These activities were the Doctoral Proposal Writing Workshop and Scopus Indexed Journal Writing. The workshop was expected to be useful as a lecturer in improving the quality of classroom teaching and to improve research skills in the fields of linguistics and applied linguistics. Lecturers who have not taken doctoral program will have a proposal for doctoral study that was ready to apply for their Doctoral program. In addition, it was expected that there would also be more Scopus-quality articles that enhance institutional competitiveness.

Professor Michael Harrington from the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia also gave a Guest Lecture followed by the students of Master Linguistics Studies, held in the Auditorium of Building A (2nd floor) FCS UB on September 25th, 2018,at  7 a.m up to 12 p.m. The guest lecture subjects were: (1) Early Theories in L2 Learning: Behaviorism, Innativist, Interactionist Accounts, (2) Linguistic Aspects of Interlanguage: the Influence of L1, (3) Psycholinguistic Aspects of SLA, and (4) Discourse Aspects of SLA.

While guest lecture subjects on September 26, 2016 at 7 a.m. up to 11 a.m. were: (1) Individual Differences in L2 Acquisition, and (2) Social Aspects of SLA. (PS.MILing/DT/MSH/PSIK FIB)
