Course description

Session descriptor: The global majority of people are multilingual, including the vast majority of students who attend our schools. Students deserve schools where they are seen, valued, and loved and do not have to leave their multilingual selves behind. As international educators we have to lovingly interrogate our own understandings and mindsets about language and language learning.
