The multilayered approach: Language support and development in the Australian University context

With increased social, cultural and linguistic diversity of our university populations, and a greater understanding of the contextual nature of language learning, support and development opportunities for university students with English as an additional language have shifted from the remedial EAL classroom to the wider learning – and living – contexts of our students.

This workshop will present an overview of the ways in which language development opportunities are delivered to students at La Trobe University within, alongside and outside the curriculum and the models underlying this. It will then ask participants to evaluate some of these programs and consider their relevance to participants’ own learning and teaching contexts.
