TRAINING EVENT

Learning with Nigeria

In this school year, the North-Rhine Westphalian Ministry of Education has introduced Nigeria as a country of reference into its school curriculum. It is a challenge, though, for teachers and teacher trainees to find their way into the vastness of this new topic area as part of the Abitur. On 4th February, 2020 we offered the second a training event which served as a practical introduction to the complex field of learning with and about Nigerian literature, film and music in the secondary EFL classroom and generated a range of fresh perspectives on Nigeria for teachers.
We would like to thank all teachers who attended this event and participated in the workshops.

Please contact us for more information or follow the link:

Olumide Popoola’s Creative Writer’s Talk

In a joint event hosted by the TEFL team and the Chair of English, Postcolonial & Media Studies, author Olumide Popoola delivered an engaging creative writer's talk titled "Undo Me! Language, Form, and Queer Potentiality" as part of this year's "Postcolonial Narrations" graduate forum. Popoola engaged with her novel "When We Speak of Nothing" and explored the idea of how form and Yoruba folklore provide means to express alternative understandings of youth culture and transgender identities. With the TEFL team, Popoola was also in talks about further projects that center on teaching Nigerian texts in German high schools.
