UPDATE 31 May 2016
Colleagues and I at Oxford Brookes University are convening a symposium in June to explore issues related to multilingual learners in three contexts: Mainstream UK Schools, International Schools and Community/Supplementary Schools. The symposium is open to all, and we are especially keen to encourage participation from both academics and practitioners (teachers, EAL coordinators and other educators). Info about the symposium, including how to book, follows.
This symposium brings together academics and practitioners from three importantly different but intrinsically related learning contexts for multilingual learners: mainstream schools, international schools, and community/supplementary schools.
This opportunity to examine the commonalities and peculiarities of these contexts, exchange knowledge, and consider ways forward in meeting the needs of multilingual learners has the potential to radically shape the way we think about and deliver effective provision for our language learners.
