On February 13, 2018, the Department of Applied Linguistics has launched the “European Union Language Policy” (EULP) project co-funded by European Commission. EULP project is being run within Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Module Activity.
The fucnctions of Jean Monnet Modules include:
- Promoting research and first teaching experience for young researchers and scholars and practitioners in European Union issues
- fostering the publication and dissemination of the results of academic research
- creating interest in the EU and constitutes the basis for future poles of European knowledge, particularly in Partner Countries
- fostering the introduction of a European Union angle into mainly non EU related studies
- delivering tailor-made courses on specific EU issues relevant for graduates in their professional life.
The objective of the course ”EU Language Policy” is to provide students with the needed and comprehensive knowledge and essential skills of EU Language Policy including the aspects of EU communication policy. The syllabus of the module was discussed and approved at the meeting of Applied Linguistics Department (Record #7, December 19, 2017).
Professor Iryna Biskub, project coordinator, introduced students into the structure of the project, outlined topics to be covered and new methods to be applied in teaching EU Language Policy to the Lesya Ukrainka EENU students.
Vice-Rector Anna Danylchuk specified professional benefits and practical outcome of the project. She emphasized on the possibility to apply the results of project for the professional career both in Ukraine and in the European Union.
The first lecture “European Union: History and Geography” was presented by lecturer and project manager Marta Sydoruk. 63 students of the Foreign Languages Faculty subscribed for the project and were present at the lecture. They totally enjoyed multimedia content of the lecture and participated in the interactive on-line questionnaire that summed up teaching results.
Every EULP course participant will be granted an EU certificate confirming course participation and resultative performance.
