Om Francis M. Hults gæsteforelæsning (på engelsk):

Principles of Language Policy and their Implications for Educational Practice

Classrooms are sites where globalization is made local through daily interactions between students and teachers of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. As such, the domain of education is a nexus point for major language issues and a central focus of language polices in countries throughout the world. This talk addresses key principles of language policy and planning (LPP) as they have developed since the mid-twentieth century, particularly with respect to the management of language in education. Relationships between policy research and educational practice are discussed in terms of salient questions that highlight considerations for policy formation and implementation. Finally, drawing upon recent work in LPP, the role of educators as active policy actors is explored. Rather than passive recipients of policy, educators negotiate and (re)shape policy through their daily practice.
