FORTHEM Multilingualism in School and Higher Education Lab​ has finalized another joint output. The publication “Multimodality of academic genres in multilingual education” (ISBN: 978-83-7395-958-3) edited by Katarzyna Molek-Kozakowska (UO) is now available from the Lab’s results webpage.

The manual is targeted at:

  • educators who want to increase the effectiveness of their teaching methods and facilitate classroom interaction through multimodality;
  • researchers who want to communicate their outputs multimodally to the broader public;
  • students who want to make their language learning more fulfilling and their projects more engaging.


There are seven chapters and two appendices in this practical guidebook stretching for over 160 pages with pedagogical advice on multimodality in teaching and learning contexts, expertise on virtual exchanges and computer-mediated language tutoring, practical recommendations for engaging presentations and activity design, and guidelines on including infographics, mind-mapping or project-based activities in multimodal education.

The output is the result of several months of truly international collaboration and academic mentoring by a following team of 5 academics, 3 doctoral candidates and 4 students of teacher-training programs from Valencia, Opole, Riga and Jyväskylä (in alphabetical order):

  • Małgorzata Adams-Tukiendorf, University of Opole

  • Adila Safarova, University of Opole
  • Jevgenija Selivanova, University of Latvia
