Programme and Book of Abstracts now available for the conference taking place in March.
The purpose of the conference is to bring together academics and language teachers working in UK Universities to discuss the nature and challenges presently faced in the field. This is in the context of a recent rapid growth of demand for Arabic language learning, in particular across University Wide Language Programmes. There are now (2016) almost 60 UK Universities teaching Arabic language, including 12 who offer degree programmes (single or joint honours, undergraduate or postgraduate) in Arabic Studies. The Conference intends to:
Provide a forum for all teachers of Arabic language in Higher Education in the UK to come together, and to act as a catalyst for collaboration across all institutions;
To support the closer integration of the teaching & learning of Arabic language with the teaching & learning of other languages in UKHE;
To provide a forum for development of collaborative ideas amongst participants, leading to collaborative projects through external funding.
