Operating between languages involves the ability to comprehend and appreciate differences in meaning and language use while interacting successfully with members of different language communities. This symposium will engage language educators in a discussion of dynamic conceptions of language learning that foreground language knowledge as “partial.” Two leading scholars will be joined by a panel of language educators and researchers who will address these issues from multiple perspectives and lead participants in a facilitated conversation aimed at reflecting on, and possibly developing, new learning outcomes for their own courses. The symposium, a collaboration between UBC’s Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Education, invites language teachers, teacher educators, administrators, and community practitioners to collaboratively reflect on and speak to the different ways language knowledge can be valued in different contexts, with different learners.
