The place of linguistic and cultural diversity in teaching and learning: What do we mean and how might we go about it?

Embracing Linguistic Diversity
Tuesday 25 April 2023, 10:00 – 12:00
TBC (UoL campus)

This workshop is the second in a series of University of Leeds events on the theme of linguistic/cultural diversity in teaching and learning.

In this workshop we will:

  • Review findings from two recent surveys among staff and students at Leeds University linked to this topic.
  • Work to develop a definition of what constitutes linguistic/cultural diversity in our context(s).
  • Discuss existing approaches to linguistic / cultural diversity in relation to syllabus, teaching-related activities, assessment etc. in different subject areas and Schools.
  • Develop a set of principles which promote and sustain linguistic / cultural diversity in teaching and learning at Leeds.

We hope that the content and outcome of this session will inform future conversations and work on embracing the linguistic and/or cultural diversity of our students at Leeds. To sign up to attend this workshop, please complete this short form.
