our words make worlds

Debate 2: Inclusive Pedagogy

Tuesday 25th April 2023, 6-8 BST, Language Resource Centre (Room K-1.072, first basement) of the King’s Building), Strand Campus, King’s College London, WC2R 2LS

Language Acts and Worldmaking Laboratory is a new interdisciplinary ‘service’ module for undergraduate students at King’s. The module draws on our research and partnerships to propose new approaches to interdisciplinary study, engage with current research emerging from Language Acts and Worldmaking and empower undergraduate students to be active learners and researchers. The module also involves devising assessment methods that allow students to develop critical and creative responses to the materials and experiences they encounter. Over one semester, students on the module are trained in a series of methodologies, theoretical models and core techniques that they put to use on projects with school students who are at difference stages in their language-learning process.

In this debate, students and staff who have been part of co-designing and delivering the module will define the idea of the ‘service’ module, present their experience, and discuss the impact on their learning and teaching and on how we think about languages’ degrees in society. Students and tutors will reflect on what they have done in the module and on how they have developed academic knowledge and critical thinking skills by sharing the university classroom.

The Debate will be held in hybrid form. The link to join online will be sent once you have enrolled on Eventbrite.
