Published on Mon 8 Jul 2019
A newly published evaluation report has been co-authored by Marion Spöring, Senior Lecturer in Languages and European Studies here at the University of Dundee.
Working Together for Languages is an evaluation report considering four collaborative language promotional initiatives, Business Brunches, Language linking Global Thinking, and Word Wizard. Running from 2014-2017, these initiatives were collaborative efforts to promote languages and language learning in schools. The report looks at the impact on learner attitudes and uptake in the upper secondary phase during the period.
The authors, Hannah Doughty and Marion Spöring alongside Bernadette Holmes, conducted interviews in a range of Scottish Schools. There are a number of recommendations that will assist policymakers as they continue to encourage and promote the value of languages and language learning.
