Language is the essential condition of knowing, the process by which experience becomes reality.
This strand introduces a functional linguistic and genre specific perspective to reading and writing across academic disciplines through a developmental approach. The course will assist participants to create a set of functional linguistic tools and strategies for understanding how meaning is created in different genres. We will analyze written texts, both academic and student-constructed, from different disciplines and at different levels. Participants will apply these tools and strategies to an action research project that they teach in their discipline and academic level.
