Introduction to Semantics: Understanding cumulative learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The LCT dimension of Semantics is useful for teachers and researchers who are interested in cumulative learning and knowledge-building. This workshop demonstrates how teaching can build knowledge in segmental and in cumulative ways. Participants will analyse a selection of teaching materials. The strengthening and weakening of semantic gravity and semantic density will help them evaluate the extent to which cumulative knowledge building is evident in the materials.

The workshop will:
introduce the dimension of Semantics and its concepts of semantic gravity and semantic density
show how semantic 'waves' reveal segmental and cumulative learning patterns
provide participants with opportunities to analyse a sample of teaching materials and interpret their potential for knowledge building
enable participants to use Semantics to think about segmental and cumulative learning in their own courses and teaching practices

This workshop will be useful for lecturers, teachers who want to improve aspects of their teaching and assessing practices. It is also be invaluable for researchers who are interested in understanding teaching practices. No prior knowledge of Semantics is assumed.
