The objectives of the project are:
- to interrogate and develop forms of pedagogy appropriate to multilingual and diverse cultural contexts,
- to grapple with issues of assessment of multimodal genres and explore the new criteria that may be required,
- to contribute to the discovery and development of new semiotic resources and new uses of existing semiotic resources in particular educational contexts.
The collaboration has highlighted the importance of combining different theoretical perspectives in order to explore the objectives outlined above. Numerous research synergies have emerged during the project, for instance, an interest in ‘texts and discourses in place’ in Higher Education. Writing, inscriptions and other visual representations in informal environments in Higher Education have been collected and documented.
