We predominantly hear WCs teaching/helping students with communicating in English and fostering inclusivity, etc. However, I am very curious to know what WCs are doing for students who are studying other languages at universities. How are WCs helping them write, work on assignments/projects that are assigned in these language courses?

Thanks, Jirina! Such an important initiative, especially during the pandemic.

Love this, Katja!! There is a connection between positioning and citation, of course. those integral forms of citing using signal phrases can really help students do this!

Thank you panelists!!!

I love that! It also removes citing from plagiarism

‘you can't be wrong' - I like that approach!

@Jirina - I am curious about how you present "Canadiana" - often "Canadian culture" is imagined as very white and English (or French). Are you taking up "Canadiana" in a critical way in your program?
Megumi Taguchi (She/Her) - Douglas College

I have the same question ^^
Stevie Bell
01:08:35
love that, Sheila. So often students feel like they're not allowed to tap into the full range of their linguistic resources. As though learning in English should silence or replace their other languages. So messed up
Mandy Penney
01:10:11
^ I have a similar question around the framing of "competency" in English - whether there are conversations about multiple and global Englishes, and the ways that concepts of competency and correctness are often barriers for students, especially those who are equity-denied.
Stevie Bell
01:11:36
I feel like Katja’s approach to combining ideological critique with explicit language teaching might be a model for us all. Katja - perhaps you can describe this approach for SKRIB or CWCR/RCCR?

@jirna I'm curious to know how you connect (for lack of a better word) Canadiana with the idea of inclusivity? How do you avoid it from being an exclusively Canadian thing?
Deea Deb

^especially when it comes to International students
Megumi Taguchi (She/Her) - Douglas College
01:13:39
^^International students are part of that "Canadiana" :)
Helen Friesen

Thank you very much.

Yes Megumi! I think often the way "Canadian" is imagined make some people feel that they will never "belong"

Including Canadiana as Jiriana explained it and as UW practices it is specifically intended to encourage joining in local activities so students from other places are not left on the sidelines. More than anything, it encourages students to join it.
