From Politics to Policy: Rethinking the Relationship between Language Centres and Modern Foreign Language Departments
Dlaska, Andrea
Language Learning in Higher Education, v1 n2 p287-299 Nov 2012
One of the key recommendations of the Worton Review of Modern Foreign Languages provision in higher education in England (2009) is more effective collaboration between language centres and language departments. This paper presents a fully integrated model of such collaboration and develops recommendations for language centres and language departments wishing to work together in a variety of institutional settings. The paper looks in particular at opportunities for quality enhancement and transfer of best practice across programmes, and at the impact on curriculum development both in institution-wide and degree programmes. It further addresses the impact of collaboration on the internationalisation agenda, on personnel development and on the research agenda for languages.
