National Languages Plan and Strategy: Participate in a national survey of languages teachers PDF Print E-mail

Teachers of all languages in schools or community language centres are encouraged to participate in a survey to contribute their experiences of the teaching of languages. This survey, relating to language program provision and student participation, should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

The survey data will be used to inform the development of a national picture of the current situation of languages education across Australia, including the teaching of Community Languages and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.

This data collection is part of the broader project being conducted by the Australian Federation of Modern Language Teachers Associations (AFMLTA) for the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment. The project involves developing recommendations that will inform future policy design for languages education in Australia.

There will be a series of 3 teacher surveys implemented across 2020. Teacher Survey 1 is NOW OPEN.


Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and all information provided will remain anonymous (the names of individual schools and participating teachers are not collected).

MIFF 2020 Schools Program - FREE access for 2020 and FREE teacher webinars PDF Print E-mail

Enhance your students’ language learning, intercultural understanding and media analysis with the 2020 MIFF Schools program.

MIFF Schools is an initiative by the Melbourne International Film Festival to enrich the cinema experience for younger viewers.

Given the exceptional circumstances in which we all find ourselves this year, the MIFF Schools program will be delivered online between September 3-17. MIFF is, for this year only, also pleased to offer the films in the 2020 Schools program free of charge to ALL Schools. This is extremely exciting as schools that may not have been able to access the program in the past, (for example schools from rural/regional locations), will be able to participate in, and engage with the program this year! MIFF is also happy for schools outside of Victoria register to access this year’s program. MIFF has advised that access to these films is limited.

 

The program was chosen with a view to presenting high-quality, diverse films in some of the languages commonly taught in Victorian schools: French, ItalianJapaneseMandarin and Spanish.

The MIFF Schools films are also selected for how well they address the Victorian Curriculum Learning Areas for The ArtsThe HumanitiesScience and Languages, with many of the films containing themes and issues relevant to the Critical and Creative ThinkingEthicalIntercultural and Personal and Social capabilities. 2020 again sees the program representing parity between male and female directors.


The Modern Language Teachers' Association of Victoria (MLTAV), in partnership with MIFF, presented a ‘Program Launch’ webinar (on 16 July) to introduce, and showcase, the five programmed films on offer this year. This collaboration also offers free Professional Learning webinars for teachers on each of the programmed films.
