Understanding language and learning
Have you ever thought about the role of language in learning? This free course, Understanding language and learning, is designed to make you reflect on the relationship between language and learning. You will explore these two concepts in ways that may challenge your current understanding of them. One of the assumptions on this course is that language and learning are inextricably intertwined. It is hard to imagine learning happening without some sort of language mediating it; and it is almost as hard to imagine language being used without some sort – however small – of learning taking place.
This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course.
