A case doesn't mean having answers right away - a case means rather
coming up with guiding questions related to your own personal or professional interests.
In this first case-work we invite you to bring in your experiences or questions stemming from a specific multicultural and multilingual context. You may think about your former or current work setting (be it a local intercultural youth club or a multinational corporation etc.), the mixed population of the city or region you live in, a particular age cohort (e.g. pre-school) or target group (e.g.
people from bi-national families), multilingual media, identity construction in young or transforming nations ([url removed, login to view] regard to a national anthem), a particular concern within a national curriculum (e.g. bilingual literacy) ...
Please think about detailing as much as you feel comfortable with and are already knowledgeable about:
a) the specific and/or general nature of the problem, kick-off case addresses within the overall question of "Learning and development in multilingual and multicultural contexts";
b) the methodological issues the case raises (i.e. What kind of
information needs to be collected? by which means? from which
sources? which challenges will probably arise?);
c) what you, personally, expect to learn from the detailed analysis of the kick-off case you are submitting with regard to the profile you would like to develop.
Please provide us with a presentation of the case are currently most
interested in. You are free to choose the form and style which seems most suitable to you (essay, outline, plan, article, video, online article, web-site, multi-modal presentation integrating speech and images etc.). If written a range of appr. 1500 – max. 3000 words applies and for audio-visual materials a limit of 10 minutes.
The case should be something that allows anybody to see what your interests are, to understand why you are interested in this matter and the way you&#700;ll treat your question, to develop the research. The objective is to get a better idea of your ideas, as regards the methodology you would apply.
