Navigating intersubjectivity in the English classroom

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited or keynote talk at national or international conference


Education systems around the world are responding to increasingly diverse student populations. Teachers around the world are becoming more aware of the need to better understand and critique concepts such as multiculturalism and multilingualism. In this keynote talk I focus on some of the key issues and understandings needed by English teachers who are engaged in multicultural contexts. Drawing on data from contemporary classrooms and educational research projects, I illustrate how teachers navigate intersubjectivity in their classrooms. Such routes include, the creation of open learning environments, the recognition of translanguaging practices, the development of context-specific teaching materials. I suggest that working towards a critical awareness and understanding of interculturality can support our educational lives lived on a multicultural spectrum.
