PhD Researcher Workshop:On The Border of Art and Language Teaching in the Multilingual World

PhD Researcher Workshop:On The Border of Art and Language Teaching in the Multilingual World

Issued: Mon, 21 May 2018 13:58:00 BST

The workshop will be of potential interest to students of languages, linguistics, museum studies, sociology, art education and art and those who are seeking progressive interdisciplinary methods tailored to the needs of specific social groups, including, for example, adult ESOL learners who constitute significantly different research group than children, young adults, and students.

Workshop aims:

  • To learn about using artistic inquiry for research – how we could use artistic enquiry to establish a better understanding of multilingualism itself, about the process of language learning (becoming multilingual) and a language learner (being/ becoming a multilingual language speaker)
  • To learn how and what art and art-based teaching activities could be used to support the process of language learning in the multilingual context

The exhibition accompanying the workshop will be providing the insight into the process of artistic enquiry into language acquisition, inspiration and source material for potential art-based language learning activities (pedagogy).
