The newly unveiled MaMLiSE (Majority and Minority Languages in School Contexts: Helping teachers, pupils, and parents) E-Learning Platform is a ground-breaking initiative designed to empower educators working in linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms.
In an interdisciplinary collaborative initiative, Associate Professor, Mary Masterson from the School of Education, joined forces with colleagues from the School of Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics, Assistant Dean International, Angela Farrell and Michelle Daly, together with partners from Poland, Germany, and Greece, to create the MaMLiSE (Majority and Minority Languages in School Contexts: Helping teachers, pupils, and parents) e-Learning platform - a pioneering venture set to transform educational landscapes.
