Innovative language teaching and learning at university: enhancing employability

Posted on 21 February 2017

New book, co-edited by Carmen Álvarez-Mayo, is available online

We are delighted to announce that the second volume in this series of papers dedicated to innovative language teaching and learning at university, focused on enhancing employability, is now available online

First two printed books

This volume is co-edited by Carmen Álvarez-Mayo of the Department of Language and Linguistic Science at York, Angela Gallagher-Brett and Franck Michel.

Throughout the book, authors share good practices drawing on research; reflect on their experience to promote student engagement, inclusivity, and collaboration; and foster a successful learning environment while developing employability skills. Whatever the language – or the subject we teach – there are a number of skills, behaviours, attributes and attitudes which staff and students should be aware of in order to enhance teaching and learning so as to maximise student potential and their employability prospects. 

This edited volume contains 14 selected short papers based on presentations from the InnoConf 2016, held at the University of York, as well as Dr Jocelyn Wyburd's keynote address and foreword.
