Reshaping Languages in Higher Education Conference 2014
Posted on May 09 2014
Venue: The Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton
Event Date: 09/07/2014 - 10/07/2014
Languages have never been more needed in higher education, both as specialist study and as basic key skills. University programmes are undergoing rapid change to meet newly emerging needs and new student profiles. The academic community needs to reshape the ways in which languages are offered, finding bold and imaginative responses to address the new agendas.
The conference is aimed at anyone concerned with learning and teaching in higher education and its relationships with secondary schools and further education. It will be of interest to people in the languages professions and to employers who wish to develop closer links with education in the field of languages and related studies. It is intended as a forum for networking, sharing ideas and resources, and exploring ways of meeting the challenges of sustaining high quality education in languages and related subjects.
