Abstract

This article describes an interactive, “all singing and dancing” web-based version of an introductory stylistics course under development at Lancaster University, UK, as well as an educational experiment in which it will be used. The web-based course is an electronic version of an existing lecture-seminar course that is designed to be interactive and fun, and also contains an innovative self-assessment mechanism which enables first-year students to practise stylistic analysis before submitting their coursework assessment at the end of the course. The educational experiment involves using the two different teaching modes to deliver the course to parallel student groups, and comparing student reactions. Colleagues in other universities are invited to join in the experiment, using students in their own departments.
