Lab Introduction with Course Syllabi


Lab: The Muriel Tomlinson Language Resource Center:
http://www.utm.edu/staff/globeg/lab.shtml

Location: Humanities 415

Requirement: All students in elementary and intermediate language courses (111, 115, 122, 222) are required to complete two 50-minute of language lab work each week. They must schedule one of these periods in the Muriel Tomlinson Language Resource Center (Humanities 415).

Availability: Our lab's 40 scheduled hours, posted at
http://www.utm.edu/staff/globeg/labsched.htm
will be adequate for your scheduling convenience if plan carefully. This will allow you to coordinate foreign-language work with your job, activities or family schedule. We can only guarantee 20 maintained work stations, but we will set our limit at 21.

Rationale: Your 2 weekly hours of Language Lab, like science and some other labs, are an integral and scheduled part of a 4-hour course. Attendance procedures will be similar to class seat time during the 3 hours of class time scheduled with your classroom teacher. In addition, many of the written assignments you hand to your teacher will be either completed or initiated in the lab. Accordingly, a portion of the credit you receive for homework and class work will be assessed from your lab performance. Lab attendance and the work you produce from lab technologies will account for 20% of your course work.

Procedure:

1) Carefully pick one 50-minute period (on the hour) when your schedule will permit you to attend lab regularly, every week at the same time. Once you select your lab period, you must keep it for the entire semester.

FALL 2011: Starting Tuesday, Aug. 28 and going through Friday, Aug. 31(for both Friday & Monday). Sign up for each time, printing ALL information asked for clearly on the sign-in form and entering same in the computer roster (know your teacher's name, your class and class hour). We will begin lab formally (with attendance) on Tuesday, Sept. 4. No one who is not properly signed up will be counted.

3) Write down each date and time on your own personal schedule.

4) Continue to come at your scheduled time (be prompt) for a semester minimum of 11 sessions. If you finish an assignment very early in a lab hour, you must stay and practice with lab materials for your subject during the rest of the hour. Do not work on things unrelated to your language learning while in lab (NO FACEBOOK, or homework in other subjects, etc.).

5) When you come, make sure the lab assistant marks you "present" before you leave. As in any class, you are expected to arrive on time. If you cannot locate a lab assistant, please report this in our departmental office Humanities 427.

6)If unavoidable and documentable circumstances force you to miss a scheduled lab, you may choose to use one of the "Extra Lab or Make-up Attendance Certificates" issued by your teacher on the first day of class. Begin by presenting your case for make-up status (including doctor's or field trip supervisor's note, coach's game roster, etc.) to your teacher, who alone can sign the first line of the form. At the end of the lab session you use to make-up work missed, have the lab monitor sign to verify you were there and did appropriate lab work during that session. Then hand the signed form back to your teacher. The fact that there are nearly 14 weeks after the sign-up period until the end of the semester should give you plenty of time to work in your 22 required sessions (11 in H415).

7) Provided there are enough machines available for scheduled work, we welcome students who want to come for extra practice and independent language-related work. On these occasions, we ask that you fill out a slip which the lab attendant will sign to show your classroom teacher your initiative.

8) Keep up with what is happening in the lab on its schedule and announcements page:
http://www.utm.edu/staff/globeg/labsched.htm

9) You will receive an informal evaluation of your lab work or attendance during the semester. Your lab grade impacts heavily on your overall course grade. Every student willing to stay on task is capable of earning 100% credit for this portion of the class grade. If you have any questions about your lab grade, see your instructor immediately. You must hand in evidence that you have completed your lab work to your teacher on a regular schedule (the units you are currently studying).

Lab assistants will keep students' university IDs while they borrow any piece of software.

Directions about how to make accent will be posted.

Your teachers will give you all the details of what you should be doing in the lab, and will also explain how you are to prove to them that you have done the work.
