Innovations in university language teaching
Policy and practice
University language teaching in Australia has undergone significant changes over the past few years in spite of considerable constraints. Many institutions have responded positively to the changing needs of their students with new courses, study abroad programs and summer schools. This paper focuses on some recent innovations taking place in language teaching at the University of Melbourne. These relate to both policy and practice and include the establishment of a School of Languages. Taken as a whole these innovations constitute an important step in the development of a coherent university language policy and provide new directions in language teaching at this University.
