Terminology Work for English for Special Purposes (ESP) Courses

This course is being offered within the scope of the BA and MA modules in foreign language teaching. The course will provide students not only with the opportunity to explore the principled design of terminology databases, but it will also provide a focused environment for the creation of one such database: an initial basic German-English terminological database for the international emergency wing (SEEBA) of the THW (Technisches Hilfswerk). SEEBA volunteers are men and women working in regular day jobs in Germany. They have to be ready at a moment's notice to leave their jobs, their homes and their families to rush to the site of international disasters -- to save lives and to help make living conditions bearable for the survivors. As German is not widely used outside of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, SEEBA volunteers naturally use English as their lingua franca while working with other relief agency workers, local authorities and of course victims, while on mission abroad.

FTSK students have already participated in three intensive courses for SEEBA volunteers and the fourth one is being offered this semester (Übung: Teaching English for Special Purposes). While three excellent courses have been designed and offered so far, they have lacked one critical component: a database covering the numerous tools and pieces of technical equipment used by the SEEBA on mission abroad. This has meant that both the FTSK student teachers and the SEEBA volunteers participating in our intensive courses had a very difficult time incorporating THW-specific terminology in the courses. This desideratum is to be met this semester by this course on terminology work for ESP. The course will be responsible for creating a suitable terminological database for the running of this semester's intensive THW course, which will take place in early July 2014.

Please note: this course will require the intensive proactive participation of every member of the course! The students will work together, and with the lecturer's assistance, as an investigative team to learn how to do terminological work, and you will work together as a creative database design team to provide the FTSK teachers with terminological material that will help them design and implement an effective course for THW volunteers in July.
