Volume Editor:
Despite the superdiversity of an increasingly multicultural and multilingual world, policy and practice in education continues to deal with issues of inclusion and diversity in language education in rather tangential and peripheral ways. To address critical issues in multicultural and multilingual education, with implications for curriculum, teacher preparation and pedagogical practice, this volume brings together international perspectives on research, policy and pedagogical practice that help the global community gain new insights into ground-breaking work that addresses current questions, challenges and complexities in an education world of superdiversity.
Volume Editor:
This edited volume emphasizes the critical role of macro, meso and micro factors in development of multilingual and multicultural environment for learning and teaching. The collection advocates for inclusive education, safe spaces for both teachers and students, teachers and students’ agency, educators’ reflection, and continuous professional development. It promotes the idea of multilingualism as a learning resource by overcoming a monolingual bias and language ideologies and by taking learners’ individual differences, social, economic and political factors into consideration. The originality of this collection is in its diversity spanning linguistic, sociocultural, and pedagogical dimensions.
