Reconceptualising Learning Programs for Intercultural Language Learning
Scarino, Angela
Babel, v43 n1 p7-9, 35, 38 Nov 2008
This paper describes the need to reconceptualise teaching and learning programs for intercultural language learning. The shift is from concepts such as "content" and its "coverage" (intended to address "learner needs and interests") to developing programs focused on meaning making in interaction and on learners as meaning makers. Specific questions are provided to stimulate a reconsideration of programming practices.
