Dudley Reynolds delves into language learning for WISE 2019
The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) has released an excerpt from Dudley Reynolds’ report on language learning in education. Reynolds is preparing the report, Language Policy in Globalized Contexts, for the WISE 2019 summit that will be held in Doha in November.
In the report, Reynolds challenges education systems to examine how they support their communities’ language resources. Drawing from research on multilingualism as both a societal and individual phenomenon, Reynolds offers a frank discussion of issues that must be addressed in order to build cohesive communities that value both individual identity and opportunity for all.
Reynolds is a teaching professor of English at CMU-Q and the former president of TESOL International Association, the world’s largest professional association for teachers who support multilingualism through English language learning.
