Umalusi Seminar Conceptual exploration of decolonisation of language pedagogy, learning, and assessment

 

Conceptual exploration of decolonisation of language pedagogy, learning and assessment

The current national discourse on decolonisation of education is centred on what is happening or not happening in the higher education sector. Almost no reference is made to the curriculum and related matters in the pre-university system. Thus, this seminar aims to interrogate the notion of decolonisation of schooling, with specific reference to pedagogy, learning and assessment. Much could be said about the decolonisation of curricula to incorporate humanity’s knowledge systems into curriculum and knowledge selection (Fataar, 2018), but this seminar intends to explore matters beyond knowledge selection to include a discussion on what decolonisation means for pedagogy, learning and assessment.

Professor Rajendra Chetty (Department of Language Education, University of the Western Cape) will contextualise the discussion, and then explore the implications of what decolonisation could mean for the choice of pedagogy, kinds of learning and types of assessment.

Professor Leketi Makalela (School of Languages, University of the Witwatersrand) will interrogate the question: What conceptual approaches should be explored to propel the decolonisation discourse, in the context of Umalusi’s work, towards the bases on which curricula for teaching and assessing languages, in general, and African languages in particular, should be based?

Possible probing questions:

  1. What counts as language knowledge and what should form the basis of language curriculum design and delivery?
  2. How could learning be enhanced through the acknowledgement and practice of multiple intelligences?
  3. How could a shift in the thinking about assessment impact on effective learning?
