    Course Description

    This course introduces key approaches to computer-assisted language learning (CALL). Students learn about pedagogical approaches and assessment in CALL. Students share ideas on blogs and in class discussions, and design and execute a pilot study.

  3. Justification

    A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.

    Replacing Selected Topics with Permanent number; already listed in program

    B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?

    This is a core course for the TESLA (formerly SLA/IT , SLATE) program. TESLA doctoral students must take this course to complete their program of studies, but the course has only been offered as a special-topics course. The program of studies form for TESLA is attached. 2. This course will serve a central role in preparing TESLA students by familiarizing them with the application of technology in second language acquisition. They will not only understand learning theories and the application of instructional technology in SLA, but will also learn about the interface between theories and practices in teaching and learning. This course will cover the fundamental theories and practices involving technology in language learning and teaching, so students will be able to develop their own theoretical framework to support their ongoing research, scholarship, and teaching.

    C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?

    Yes, 3 or more times

    D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)

    A terminal degree (doctoral degree) is required to teach this course.

  4. Other Course Information

    H. Attendance Policy

    Course Attendance at First Class Meeting – Policy for Graduate Students: For structured courses, 6000 and above, the College/Campus Dean will set the first-day class attendance requirement. Check with the College for specific information. This policy is not applicable to courses in the following categories: Educational Outreach, Open University (TV), FEEDS Program, Community Experiential Learning (CEL), Cooperative Education Training, and courses that do not have regularly scheduled meeting days/times (such as, directed reading/research or study, individual research, thesis, dissertation, internship, practica, etc.). Students are responsible for dropping undesired courses in these categories by the 5th day of classes to avoid fee liability and academic penalty. (See USF Regulation – Registration - 4.0101,

    Attendance Policy for the Observance of Religious Days by Students: In accordance with Sections 1006.53 and 1001.74(10)(g) Florida Statutes and Board of Governors Regulation 6C-6.0115, the University of South Florida (University/USF) has established the following policy regarding religious observances: (

    In the event of an emergency, it may be necessary for USF to suspend normal operations. During this time, USF may opt to continue delivery of instruction through methods that include but are not limited to: Blackboard, Elluminate, Skype, and email messaging and/or an alternate schedule. It’s the responsibility of the student to monitor Blackboard site for each class for course specific communication, and the main USF, College, and department websites, emails, and MoBull messages for important general information.

    I. Policy on Make-up Work

    Make-up Policy on Missed Work: Any late work will be evaluated and the overall course grade will be lowered by one-half a letter (e.g. from A to A-). Any late work will not be accepted more than one week past the due date. The university policy on academic integrity and plagiarism will be followed. Academic Dishonesty: “Plagiarism is defined as "literary theft" and consists of the unattributed quotation of the exact words of a published text or the unattributed borrowing of original ideas by paraphrase from a published text. On written papers for which the student employs information gathered from books, articles, or oral sources, each direct quotation, as well as ideas and facts that are not generally known to the public-at-large, must be attributed to its author by means of the appropriate citation procedure. Citations may be made in footnotes or within the body of the text. Plagiarism also consists of passing off as one's own, segments or the total of another person's work.” “Punishment for academic dishonesty will depend on the seriousness of the offense and may include receipt of an "F" with a numerical value of zero on the item submitted, and the "F" shall be used to determine the final course grade. It is the option of the instructor to assign the student a grade of "F" of "FF" (the latter indicating dishonesty) in the course.” Detection of Plagiarism: It is very important to state in your syllabus that you plan to submit student assignments to in order to detect plagiarism. This will give you the legal right to submit student assignments to If you pan to submit assignments to Safe Assignment, use the statement below: The University of South Florida has an account with an automated plagiarism detection service which allows instructors to submit student assignments to be checked for plagiarism. I reserve the right to 1) request that assignments be submitted to me as electronic files and 2) electronically submit to, or 3) ask students to submit their assignments to through myUSF. Assignments are compared automatically with a database of journal articles, web articles, and previously submitted papers. The instructor receives a report showing exactly how a student's paper was plagiarized. Web Portal Information: Every newly enrolled USF student receives an official USF e-mail account that ends with "" Every official USF correspondence to students will be sent to that account. Go to the Academic Computing website and select the link "Activating a Student E-mail Account" for detailed information. Information about the USF Web Portal can be found at: ADA Statement: “Students with disabilities are responsible for registering with the Office of Student Disabilities Services in order to receive special accommodations and services. Please notify the instructor during the first week of classes if a reasonable accommodation for a disability is needed for this course. A letter from the USF Disability Services Office must accompany this request.” USF Policy on Religious Observances: “Students who anticipate the necessity of being absent from class due to the observation of a major religious observance must provide notice of the date(s) to the instructor, in writing, by the second class meeting.”
