Intercultural Language Learning at Work: A Student-Designed Module
Sadoux, Marion
During the academic year 2014-15, the Language Centre at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) worked in partnership with students on the design and validation of accredited work placement modules in the Language Centre. This initiative, endorsed by the UK campus within the Students As Change Agents (SACA) programme, aimed to address key concerns within the University with regards to employability and to the difficulty of combining a UK model of higher education and employability requirements within the Chinese context. This case study will look at the benefits of co-curricular design and at the importance of involving students in employability related projects. It will finally review performance and feedback from the first cohort of students and indicate areas for improvement. A short list of references and links is included.
