老师,我想了解下IDT的主要课程有哪些?读博期间主要有哪些任务?比起国内的语料库语言学专业,它有什么特色? 谢谢您!祝您工作顺利,笑口常开:p
Instructional Design Technology (IDT) 的课程在这里有详细说明:
补充说明一下,我们这里的博士学位项目有九个不同的专业 (concentration),如果你对语料库语言学感兴趣,那么主要修读的是 Second Language Studies 专业的课程,不是 IDT;当然,必修课之外你可以辅修其他方向的课程。
下面是关于 SLS 专业及课程的说明:

The Second Language Studies concentration within the School of Education Ph.D. Program prepares students to be researchers and teacher-researchers of second/foreign language acquisition, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, and assessment who work in regional, national, or international universities or in other educational institutions and corporations. The program of study engages Ph.D. students in rigorous theory- and research-based exploration of various contributors/factors that impact second/foreign language learning and teaching, from early childhood through adulthood, with emphasis on cognitive development, social opportunities, and educational access.

Ph.D. students in the Second Language Studies concentration receive rigorous training through coursework, individualized mentored research experience, and other professional development activities such as conference presentations and scholarly publications. Through intensive scientific training, students acquire and consolidate knowledge and skills essential for critical evaluation of existing knowledge and development of new knowledge in second language studies. Ph.D. students are expected to be active members of scholarly communities at regional, national, and international levels through their contribution to and leadership in the field.

Second Language Studies Ph.D. students also have opportunities to gain research experience through various programs and research centers in the School of Education and across the University. There are also ample opportunities to gain teaching experience through the Center for English as a Second Language, ELS, and several other English language institutes, schools, and programs in the region.

An SLS Ph.D. student’s advisor will be a faculty member of the Second Language Studies concentration. Under the supervision of a faculty advisory committee, students design programs of study that suit their unique research interests, expertise, and professional goals. This can be achieved through a combination of required courses and electives. At least one year of the program of study must be completed through full time study. During the year of full-time study, Ph.D. students may not hold full-time employment. In addition to the EDST Ph.D. core courses, the Second Language Studies concentration requires seven (7) required courses (21 semester hours) and a minimum of two (2) elective courses (6 or more semester hours), as outlined below:

Required Courses (21 hours):
  • LSLS 9061: Foundations of Second Language Acquisition (3 cr.)
