Summary
This project will be an inter-university, collaborative investigation into the development and effectiveness of institution-wide approaches to post-entry English language assessment and language development in the university sector. Through document analysis, survey research and case study research, the project will produce and disseminate across the higher education sector a set of online resources that will assist universities to develop effective and sustainable institutional approaches to the implementation of post-entry language needs analysis and strategies to develop English language proficiency. The resources will (a) map existing institutional strategies and activities nationally; (b) identify and model institutional strategies and activities that constitute good practice; (c) provide case study data on these issues from five Australian universities; (d) develop measurable criteria for evaluating the success of institutional approaches on these issues; and (e) provide access to a community of practice that is able to offer support and assistance around the key issue of higher education students' English language development.
