null Save the date: Clos­ing sem­i­nar, ELLA – Em­bo­died Lan­gua­ge Lear­ning th­rough the Arts, 23 October 2024



The ELLA research project (2021–2024), funded by the Kone Foundation, aims to expand the understanding of language, language learning, learning more broadly, and the intertwining of art with all of these. The project’s goal is to renew pedagogical practices in various learning environments and to stimulate critical discussion on how educational structures can better respond to societal changes.


The project’s final conference will present research findings, practices, and policy recommendations, and it will be conducted mainly in English.
