This full-day symposium will focus on language teaching and learning at UCL and in schools and is hosted by the Languages Stream within the newly founded UCL Centre for Humanities Education with members from the School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS) and the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES).

The event will be divided into two parts: a panel discussion about languages at UCL with representatives from different departments involved in language teaching and learning; a panel discussion on language teaching and learning in schools with invited guest speakers from primary and secondary schools, and other stakeholders. Both roundtable discussions will be followed by networking workshops to encourage future collaboration across the institution and the sectors. The symposium will also include a viewing of the showcase exhibition Not Just Words: Learning Languages through Art and Objects currently on at UCL Art Museum. The symposium will be followed by the official launch of the new UCL Centre for Humanities Education.

The symposium is hosted and financially supported by the UCL Centre for Humanities Education, which is generously funded by generous support from the Lord Randolph Quirk Endowment Fund at UCL.

Registration will begin at 9:30 and the event will finish at 16:30. To view the full Programme and for further details, please visit: More than Words: A Symposium on Language Teaching and Learning
