Sociocultural-Linguistics & Pragmatics MOOC for Intercultural Education more

Sun, Nov 14, 19:20-19:45 Asia/Tokyo

An overview and demonstration of a MOOC for intercultural education. The Global Englishes (GEs)-oriented MOOC refers to Baker’s (2011) intercultural awareness (ICA) to conceptualise the intercultural skills for learning. Integrating GEs and ICA links important emerging research with practical learning opportunities. These opportunities may support student intercultural learning and are potentially useful in a context of reduced student mobility. The 10-unit MOOC, shown in the presentation, is freely downloadable for use elsewhere.
