Before certain class sessions, the teacher posts a SpeakUp on the subject matter. Students may be asked, for example, "Do you consider yourself bilingual? These SpeakUp's are used to start the course by stating the students' knowledge or sometimes to pause in the middle of the theory to start a discussion.
During each class session, the teacher gives a presentation of between 20 and 30 minutes of theory. This presentation is illustrated by articles or learning videos. Most often, the articles are presented in a flipped classroom format and the videos are shown during the class. The teacher then devotes 15 minutes to reviewing the content of the article or video. The students must then analyze it as a group and answer the questions proposed on PowerPoint by the teacher.
The evaluation of the course is based on a research topic of choice. Students can choose freely from the different content areas covered in the course modules. In terms of production, students have the choice of producing a written research report only (which will then count for 100% of their grade) or producing a written report (70%) and a video (30%). The video is optional, and students who choose this option must present their case study (problem, method, motivation, problems encountered, etc.) in a maximum of 5 minutes. The report and the video are evaluated according to an evaluation grid provided to the students.
