Seventh Conference on University Teaching in Catalan and English

 

The 7th Conference on University Teaching in Catalan and English is a forum through which the academic staff, who teach (or have taught or will teach) using Catalan or English as a working language in their classes at the University of Alacant, meet together.

This initiative meets the objectives established in the Plan to increase the use of Catalan and other languages in the teaching activities 2017-2020 (PIVALD) to support the academic staff in their language training so that they can use the two official languages and other languages in their academic activity and with their students. 

 

Objectives

  • Informing the UA academic staff on the activities undertaken by the Office of the Vice President for Culture, Sports and Language Policies to launch a Multiyear Plan on Language Policies at the UA, especially to increase the teaching activity in Catalan and other languages.
  • Reflecting on the role and relevance of the use of Catalan in the teaching activity within our linguistic, social and labour context.
  • Reflecting on what the teaching activity in other non-official languages at the University of Alicante involves.
  • Raising awareness of resources available at the Languages Service for the academic staff in order to support their teaching activity in Catalan and other languages.
  • Linking together the academic community who teach or are willing to teach in Catalan or English at the UA.
