Focus of the ReN is
- actual discourse of students and teachers communicating on curricular topics in a language other than their L1. The ReN will provide new information on this ‘missing link'.
- complementary to already available research in this area which has mainly been concerned with language learning outcomes on the one hand and content subject pedagogy on the other.
The findings will be highly relevant in two ways: first they will examine ongoing language learning processes; second they will explore the complex yet crucial role/s language plays in collaborative knowledge construction, which is mirrored in the range of disciplinary affiliations among the ReN members.
