Discover our Clusters

Teaching Indigenous Languages in Australia Universities

There is a great deal to discuss about how training in Indigenous languages at tertiary level is to be done effectively, and in a way that enriches our understanding of Indigenous languages. This cluster is designed to inform and facilitate that discussion.

Work Integrated Learning and Languages Studies

This cluster seeks to explore the role of WIL in language studies from practical and theoretical points of view. It aims to facilitate the emergence of common research projects, to design and disseminate educational placement models and guidelines, as well as to promote WIL practices across the tertiary sector.

Translating and Interpreting Cultures and Languages

The TICL cluster provides a forum for discussion of  translation and interpreting, and their use in the foreign language classroom and in the training of language and culture professionals.
