Models for Collaboration in Language Education: From the Macro to the Micro

As the international language education sector continues to grow and mature, it is increasingly clear that it is vital to the success of students of all ages. With this in mind, countries and states especially in Latin America are beginning to look at ways to support internationalization at home through policy and language education programs and initiatives that find ways to increase the number and scope of individuals accessing high quality second language education.

In this presentation, Julian Inglis (member of the Languages Canada Board of Directors and Chair of the Quality Assurance Committee) will present the Languages Canada approach to supporting internationalization efforts of governments, institutions, and individuals. These efforts range from international/bilateral framework agreements to promotion of member programs.

As governments at both federal and state level look abroad for expertise in bilingualism and language instruction, Languages Canada stands in a strong position, with the association’s member programs increasingly seeking sustainable partnerships, blended, and offshore delivery opportunities.

Mr. Inglis will then lead a discussion about partnerships for internationalization: What language education opportunities have participants explored in their own institutions or states? What impact have they seen? What are some of the current challenges in internationalization that require bridging?
