CLSW member Spencer Hazel teamed up with Danish colleague Dorte Lønsmann (Copenhagen Business School) to give a talk on Danish language class provision for refugees in Denmark at the Sociolinguistics Symposium in Auckland, New Zealand (27-30 June 2018).
The talk, “Norms and accountability in a refugee classroom” looked at the educational programme Dansk på Arbejde (Danish at Work), a programme that prepares recent arrivals to Denmark for the Danish labour market. The presentation focused on how teachers introduce the topic of particular social norms for Danish workplace interaction into their classroom discussions.
