Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the possibilities for developing greater plurilingual awareness amongst students and educators within Australian higher education contexts. In particular, it examines the potential of engagement and investment in translanguaging, a theory and practice that refers to the flexible and dynamic ways in which students' full repertoire of languages and cultural knowledge can be harnessed as resources for learning.
