Sprachpraxismodul Nordamerikastudien


Fachergänzungsmodul:  A list with the winter term classes is available here

Sprachpraxismodul: Communicative Skills Unfortunately, this winter term, we are unable to offer the class communicative skills. The class will be back in the program in the summer term of 2022.

Registration for communicative skills is done via HISinOne (see details here)

Registration for the winter term classes will begin on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 11 am via OLAT

Students of English and American Studies (B.A.) are also very welcome to attend both "Communicative Skills" and classes in the Fachergänzungsmodul Nordamerikastudien. In that case, please note that you cannot count credits from your *regular* classes (e.g. the seminar in Literary/Cultural History and Genre) for this module but that you need to take *additional* classes (such as a second Literary/Cultural History and Genre-seminar). 

To register for one of the classes in the Fachergänzungsmodul, please proceed as follows:

1. Please log into your OLAT-account. 

2. Open the catalogue and go to Zentrum für Schlüsselqualifikationen

3. For each of the classes listed above, we have created an OLAT-course. The names of all OLAT-courses start with Anmeldung Fachergänzung ZNAS and the name of the lecturer. From 11am on October 13, 2021 onwards, you will be able to register as a participant in the respective OLAT-course. (NB: courses are limited to 2-5 participants respectively).  By registering as a participant in the OLAT-course, you register for the class (make sure to actually click on EINSCHREIBEN, otherwise you won't be registered). This replaces any other registration procedures. We will forward your name to the lecturer at the beginning of the term. Please identify yourself to him/her at the beginning of the semester. 

In case of problems or questions please do not hesitate to get in touch (Dorothee Marx: marx@anglistik.uni-kiel.de).
Please contact me via email to make an appointment for a virtual office hour.
