Jim is Visiting Research Fellow in the department. His work focuses on: theories and methods of second language learning and bilingualism, including Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL); multilingualism and new literacies; and language policy. Underlying this is a commitment to an integrated and inclusive approach to language and literacy education incorporating the areas of foreign and community/heritage language learning as well as English as an Additional Language and English mother tongue.

 

Research Interests

Jim’s recent research has focused on the development of integrated and inclusive  approaches to language teaching looking in particular at appropriate pedagogies for community/heritage language learners studying in mainstream and complementary school contexts. He has directed two projects on behalf of the Nuffield Foundation. The first (2004-2007) led to the creation of Curriculum Guides for Arabic, Mandarin, Panjabi, Tamil and Urdu, published by CILT, The National Centre for Languages. The second (2009-2011) investigated creativity in the community languages classroom from the perspectives of pedagogy and professional development of teachers.

In 2012, with Vicky Macleroy, he was awarded a grant by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation for a two year project entitled ‘Critical Connections: a multilingual digital storytelling project’. Drawing on this work he has co-edited a book with Dr Vicky Macleroy  entitled ‘Multilingual Digital Storytelling: Engaging creatively and critically with literacy’ published by Routledge. 

To enable further investigation of the significance of multilingual digital storytelling in the context of multiliteracy research, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation agreed to fund a second project entitled ‘Critical Connnections II: Moving on with multilingual digital storytelling’ (2015-2017) For this project partnerships were formed with the British Film Institute, the British Museum, the Museum of London and the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education. An offshoot from the project was the development of resources to support creative interactions with museum artefacts in the teaching of language-and-culture. Jim was particularly involved in the development of a language in art resource for the Arabic language classroom focussing on the work of artist, Ali Omar Ermes. Complementary teacher professional development guidance was also provided with support from Qatar Foundation International.
