  14. 14. In-class project (for 3/25): Service encounters include a broad range of activities, such as  visiting a professor in an office hour,  ordering food at a restaurant,  going to an office for a service (e.g., doctor, registrar),  making an appointment. They can be in person or over the phone. SEs are often difficult and intimidating to learners. Learning about SEs can be motivating and an excellent basis for TBLT.
  15. 15. Service Encounters Homework Develop a short teaching activity about a type of service encounter at an American university. Create* or find an excellent example of a service encounter to use as a model. Use one of the modes of CMC we have covered in class as a teaching tool. We will work on this in class today and Wed.
