Building on Solid Bedrock: Embedding Language Development in First-year Geology Curriculum
MetadataShow full item record
Collaboration between experts in language learning and non-language disciplines is a practical approach for reshaping assessments to ensure student language development within the discipline context. While embedding language into curriculum is by itself a valuable application, our professional partnership yielded broader positive impacts. This alliance supported professional reflective practice by providing a unique perspective on means to overcome challenges of first-year assessment and feedback, and support for students to become independent learners. As part of a larger community of professional practice, this cooperative work promotes student success across multiple disciplines and faculties.
