This guide presents and illustrates several teaching-learning-evaluation methods that promote interaction and cooperation and help students build a series of skills and competences of utmost relevance in today’s world: critical, analytic and reflective thinking, creativity, imagination and innovation, self-management, self-confidence, self-evaluation, collaborative work, planning skills, problem solving, cultural awareness and empathy, communication and negotiation skills, conflict management, team spirit; the author also highlights the self-evaluation potential of the methods, where applicable, since self-assessment is an essential part of becoming aware of the need for lifelong learning and an incentive to engage in lifelong learning processes.
The book is structured into three major sections: a selection of teaching-learning-evaluation methods for English as a foreign language, written in English; a selection of teaching-learning-evaluation methods for French as a foreign language, written in French; a selection of teaching-learning-evaluation methods for Romanian as mother tongue. The trilingual approach promotes and supports transdisciplinarity, peer coaching and team teaching. The guide appeals to undergraduates attending the specializations of English-French, Romanian-French, Romanian-English and graduates that attend a conversion study programme as an addition to their first qualification (for example, a Romanian-French graduate attends a conversion study programme in English to achieve new training and official qualification), as a response to the versatility of the labour market. In other words, the guide appeals to pre- and in-service teachers of English, French and Romanian. The bibliography section provides relevant references on the didactics of English and French as foreign languages, and the didactics of Romanian language and literature.
