A Languages Education Research Group event

As part of our commitment to our partnership schools, we are inviting secondary and primary modern languages mentors, other ML colleagues, NQTs, current trainees and colleagues with an interest in ML to attend our professional development and research meetings.

Each meeting will address a current theme in the field of languages education and will offer a stimulating range of inputs, discussions and an opportunity for the sharing of good practice and innovative thinking from members of our thriving languages community.

Making Language Learning Meaningful

  • Designing differentiated, authentic tasks which integrate language and culture (Dr Jennifer Eddy, Associate Professor, Queens College, City University of New York)
  • University of Nottingham ITE Partnership of Schools Literature, Poetry and Song Competition 2021: The Results

We are delighted that we will be joined by Dr Jennifer Eddy, Associate Professor and Program Director of World Language Education at Queens College, City University of New York. Dr Eddy will lead a workshop on the design of differentiated, authentic tasks which promote intercultural communicative competence. She will share some exemplars of real-world communicative tasks designed by language teachers in the USA which integrate language, content and culture. These Articulated Assessment Transfer Tasks (AATTs) assess for transfer, solve problems, create products and engage critical thinking for global competence.

Interested teachers and schools from the Nottingham ITE partnership of schools will be invited to participate in a collaborative language curriculum design project with Queens College, City University of New York and their partnership schools.
