This summer, in light of the COVID-19 crisis, Professional Education will be offering all class offerings online. We will be using the platform Canvas to hold these classes. You will get access to the class Canvas page 2 business days before the class date. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via email at ProEd@continue.utah.edu
The purpose of this course is to investigate the spread of English as an international language: its historical development, socio-cultural diversity and linguistics variation. In addition to numerous readings on native and non-narrative varieties of English, which can be found throughout the world (e.g., Indian English, Singaporean English, Chicano English, etc.), topics related to educational linguistics within a World Englishes paradigm will also be addressed in order to better understand common pedagogical problems and concerns related to the English language teaching in international contexts. This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
These classes are required for the noncredit Professional TESOL Certificate. Students must first apply to the certificate program prior to registering. Students taking PEPEC classes complete all assignments and exams required of for-credit students. Contact Continuing Education for more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
