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

Presenter:
Dr Katerina Loukopoulou, Senior Academic Developer, Middlesex University London

Abstract:
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.
