The fourth reading group meeting of the semester will be held next Tuesday at 15:30 (5th of April) in the meeting room of HUMAN Research Centre. We will discuss another major construct this week that is L2 interactional competence and its documentation and development based on Pekarek Doehler and Pochon-Berger’s (2015) book chapter.
Doehler, S. P., & Pochon-Berger, E. (2015). The development of L2 interactional competence: evidence from turn-taking organization, sequence organization, repair organization and preference organization. Usage-Based Perspectives on Second Language Learning, 30, 233.
For the structure of reading group meetings (2015), see the list below:
We will start the reading group by summarising the articles, followed by an in-depth discussion of them.
Additionally, you may want to do some of the following in order to prepare for the discussion:
Write down any questions you may have about the articles
Find one or more passages that you find interesting
Think about how the points presented in the articles relate to other theories or to your own research
Choose the paper you agree with the most, then pretend to be the devil’s advocate and criticize the authors’ viewpoints
