AMLUK Symposium on Pedagogies in Modern Languages, Area Studies and Linguistics

Convened by AMLUK, this symposium offers the opportunity to share and jointly develop our thinking about pedagogy in our disciplines. Rather than conceiving of research and teaching as separate activities, we are aiming to devise and support integrative approaches that broaden our fields of enquiry and disciplinary understanding.  

Among the questions to be addressed are:

•             How can our teaching methodologies support the decolonisation of our disciplines? 
•             What pedagogical strategies can help to support interdisciplinary thinking?
•             How can we put online teaching methodologies to best use in support of interdisciplinarity and internationalisation?
•             How can we link research and pedagogy in Modern Languages, Area Studies and Linguistics?
•             In what ways can pedagogy be linked to public engagement in our disciplines?
