The Quest for Equilibrium: Teaching English, Global Forces and Cultural and Linguistic Identities in the Gulf Region
The Department of English presents a lecture by Professor Salah Troudi, Graduate School of Education, University of Exeter.
Achieving or maintaining an equilibrium in matters of education within an increasingly competitive environment that has to answer to forces of globalization, economic vitality, models of effectiveness and market forces is a major challenge to all those involved in the designing of learning and teaching experiences. In a multicultural and multilingual context such as that of the United Arab Emirates, the call for equilibrium is even more pressing because of the strong socio-cultural, linguistic and historical factors that affect educational decision making and language policy in particular.
