Please join us for a two-day colloquium on 21 & 22 July 2022 to unpack and initiate alignment efforts between the Language Policy Framework for Public Higher Education Institutions and our institutional policies and practices.
Please follow this link to access the programme, Rhodes Language Policy and New Language Policy Framework.
During the colloquium, key role players, in collaboration with all staff and students at the institution, will engage in discussions and workshops to, inter alia:
● explore the institution’s responsibility, agency and accountability imperatives on the implementation of the Language Policy Framework at the institutional level.
● consider existing language practices and initiatives to use language as a resource in key academic activities, institutional governance, management, administration and support services.
● explore further opportunities for praxis, i.e. ways in which stakeholders could apply theories and insights on multilingualism to inform pedagogical practices such as curriculum development and facilitate meaningful student learning and experiences.
● inform a review of the RU Language Policy to ensure alignment with the Language Policy Framework and its implementation.
