Corpus Course for Teachers
Unit 5 is available on Monday 29th November at 10:00 (UK time) and returns to the topic of concordancing and expands by looking at the N-gram and frequency functions.
Just a couple of reminders: remember about the final assignment explained in the previous unit. Also, we’d love to have the chance to meet with you before the course ends, so remember about our drop-in sessions in week 6 of the course on the 22nd and 24th March. More details can be found further down this home page.
Ok, we’re now pushing on into unit 4, released on Monday 22nd November at 10.00 am (UK time) and in this unit we’ll be focussing on differences between word meanings and usage and how we can use corpus tools to help us with that in the classroom. We hope you find it interesting.
Now, don’t worry if you have got behind with the course, there is a certain slack built into the system so you can be working on earlier unit even while later ones have been released. We’ll still continue to monitor the earlier units’ forums for any posts and we’ll also keep the course site open for a while after the course has ended to give you time to catch up and round off if you need to.
