Mission & Vision

At BAEL, we focus on language use in social contexts and the underlying cognitive processes involved. We work with naturally occurring text and talk as well as with experimental data.

Furthermore, we believe that students must be involved in this work and empowered to do research right from the start. After all, what is research but learning, that is, finding out about life?

Information on the program

Stefanie Pohle was awarded Bonn Uni's e-teaching certificate

Stefanie Pohle is the first staff member ever to be awarded Bonn University's eTeaching certificate. The corresponding training comprised various workshops about topics such as webinars, e-assessment or copyright issues, all connected to the theme of connecting digital media and didactics. Her final project for the certificate is the blog "Language Matters".

Integrating teaching and outreach

Connecting teaching in the MA Applied Linguistics with our outreach activities, Stefanie Pohle has designed an innovative project: The blog "Language Matters! – Exciting insights into the realm of Applied Linguistics", specifically created for this purpose. MA students write posts on linguistics topics covered in class and a group of high-school students at the Gymnasium zum Altenforst in Troisdorf (GAT) read these posts and ask questions about them. It's a win-win situation: Our students process the contents in additional ways, and the GAT students learn more about different linguistic fields.
