Joanne Pagèze

I am Joanne Pagèze, Vice-President for Internationalisation at the University of Bordeaux and Lecturer in the Department of Languages and Cultures since 1998. I have extensive experience of language and culture in higher education: blended learning, EAP, ESP, EMI and multilingual and multicultural learning. I participated in the Erasmus+ EQUiiP project on staff development for the international classroom and I have taken part in European University Association peer groups: Fostering Engagement in Learning and Teaching (2017) and Internationalisation of Learning and Teaching (2019). I am Co-editor of the European Journal of Language Policy, I participate in RANACLES and I am a member of the CERCLES confederation of language centres and the ICLHE association. I am thus well connected with emerging practice and research in language and culture communities, and am actively engaged with the mainstreaming of internationalisation, connecting language and culture with internationalisation at home, internationalisation of the curriculum and virtual exchange. I stand for Chair of Language and Culture to continue our work in bringing excellent speakers and sessions to the conference, interacting with other relevant Expert Communities and maintaining a strong focus on language and culture as this is essential for widening access to, and maintaining, high-quality internationalisation.
