Description

Sustaining a Global Society: Languages of the Wider World which aims to bring together scholars, teachers and postgraduate students working with or having an interest in languages which are under represented in the education system in the UK, including minority, endangered and heritage languages as well as languages of countries with emerging economies. The conference will try to bridge the gap between the world of academia and various language communities in the UK and beyond, by offering people working in these too often separated spheres an exciting opportunity to share practice, knowledge and expertise.

Major themes for this event are:

Teaching LWW as community languages
Policy/ies and potential opportunities for LWW
Projects focussing on LWW
Cross-sector projects (e. g. projects which involve collaborations between HEIs and language communities
Training teachers in LWW

Technology to support research and practice in LWW
Developing language expertise in LWW
Curriculum development for LWW in the primary, secondary and further education sectors
