WE ARE NOW CONSTRUCTING ERL GROUP – AN INFORMAL COMPLEX OF INSTITUTIONS PRIORITISING LANGUAGE IN EDUCATION.
IF YOU SHARE OUR PERSPECTIVE, PLEASE CONSIDER ACCEPTING THIS INVITATION AND YOUR INSTITUTION JOINING THE GROUP.
ERL Group’s logic reads:
LANGUAGE SHAPES OUR IDENTITIES AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD – so:
ALL EDUCATION RESTS ON LANGUAGE – so:
EVERY TEACHER IS A LANGUAGE TEACHER – so:
LANGUAGE MERITS A SPECIAL POSITION IN EDUCATION.
To prioritise language, we are building conceptual ERL BANK covering:
ARGUMENTS: justification, evidence, policies, reference
SETTINGS: disciplines, contexts, intersections, places
IMPLEMENTATIONS: methods, practices, strategies, resources
VISIONS: ideas, alternatives, projections, perspectives
We seek Partners working on the intersection of education and language.
We welcome associations, societies, schools, and other educational establishments.
ERL GROUP is supported by academics from scientific ERL Association, sharing our premises.
Hoping to create ERL Centres around the globe, we seek national representatives.
To systematise educational issues determined by language, ERL GROUP recognises:
Scope Major: how language relates to schooling, culture, methodology, and personality;
Scope Minor: how language relates to beliefs, affect, actions, and thinking.
Accordingly, ERL GROUP has a strongly international and interdisciplinary character.
