Session 11a

The accented curriculum: how to move beyond the anglophone-biased and Received Pronunciation (RP) curriculum Design

Dr Katerina Loukopoulou, Senior Academic Developer, Middlesex University London

This presentation explores the role of accents (foreign and regional) of students and staff both in the classroom and in syllabus content. My long-term objective is to develop a toolkit that facilitates collaboration between students to co-create an ‘accented curriculum’ within the context of inclusive learning and teaching.

Key words:
Diversity, inclusivity, curriculum design, intercultural competencies.
