Student-Led Grammar Revision: Empowering First Year Spanish Beginner Students to Facilitate Their Own Learning
Bonelli, Nadezhda; Nibbs, Anna
This paper presents an innovative project-based learning activity meant to support language beginner students to develop, via their core curriculum, five enterprise capabilities ("authentic problem-solving;" "innovation and creativity;" "risk-taking;" "taking action;" and "true collaboration"), formulated at the University of Sheffield after Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) guidance and based on best UK government policy and sector practice. Within the written language component of a first year Spanish language beginners' course in Hispanic studies, students undertake an optional formative exercise towards their examination preparation: preparing and delivering presentations on key aspects of the Spanish language to be employed firstly with classmates and subsequently with Year 9 to Year 12 (Y9-Y12) students in local schools, responding to requirements developed collaboratively by school teachers and the language tutor.
