Intercultural Language Education (EDPJ5001)


This unit is designed to allow students to develop their understandings of intercultural language education in second language education contexts. Students will engage with current theoretical and research-based principles of intercultural language education, with pedagogical understandings, with cases of practice, and with issues surrounding classroom implementation of, and evaluation of, intercultural language teaching and learning. There will be examination of cases from primary, secondary and tertiary classrooms, from within Australia and from other countries throughout the world. Students will be expected to critically analyse and make judgements about the theories and practices involved with this new investigative stance on teaching languages
