This course aims at teaching and implementing scientific research methods and techniques; guiding and evaluating students' activities of small size in the related research areas; providing basic theoretical information about methods and techniques and integrating all these into practice. The seminar provides a forum for PhD students to discuss and generate ideas on issues related to a variety of foreign/second language research studies. Students conduct an in-depth study of a research topic of their choice, discuss issues with experts in the field of research, work in discussion groups, debate and problem solve on selected issues. In the seminar course, the students are given an opportunity to integrate their knowledge, skills and practical experience gained in the PhD programme.
