The students are evaluated in accordance with the university regulations, and they must attend all course meetings, whether these be synchronous, that is, in a classroom or virtual classroom, or asynchronous, that is, on a distance learning platform such as Moodle. Each class absence must be excused in the first week after the lesson missed. The final grade percentage will be reduced by 10% for every unexcused absence from physical or virtual class or for every missed assignment constituting an asynchronous class).
A grade average of at least 60% must be achieved to pass the course.
Instructors are authorized to refuse credit when the student’s absenteeism rate is around 50% even if the absences have had valid reasons.
Timely completion of assigned tasks is obligatory. In the case of assignments submitted after the deadline or re-submitted, the grade shall be lowered.
NOTE: all the above principles apply to all kinds of classes: traditional classroom and all forms of remote teaching situations. Where online teaching may apply, the tests may likewise be administered remotely in a form facilitating the verification of the achievement of learning outcomes.
Practical English - Writing in the second year of the second cycle programme aims to provide students with knowledge and skills necessary to write a master's thesis. In order to do so, in the winter semester the classes focus on gaining and developing the knowledge, skills and competencies listed in the content of the course. In the summer semester, the classes focus on practising and implementing these skills and competencies in the work on students’ MA texts.
Content distribution (Winter semester):
− Introduction (presentation of learning outcomes, content of the course, evaluation methods and criteria, code of conduct)
− Gaining and developing skills connected with academic writing - working on clarity, coherence, style, logical and grammatical correctness, and vocabulary characteristic of the academic register in accordance to C1+ standards
− Gaining knowledge and competence connected with writing a master's thesis - a knowledge of the structure of the master's thesis, acquaintance with the Department of English stylesheet, finding and evaluating sources, compiling references and footnotes, paraphrasing and quoting
− Developing competence connected with maintaining ethical norms while writing C1+ texts
− Developing skills related to critical reading and correcting of one's own texts - self-evaluation and peer evaluation
− Developing competence connected with working with a text editor
