Film, Languages and Media in Education Research Group (FLAME)
Film, Languages and Media in Education (FLAME) is a pioneering research group at Manchester Metropolitan University dedicated to the development of research and knowledge exchange activity in the areas of Pedagogy, Languages, Film and Media.
The FLAME Research Group includes a steering group at Manchester Metropolitan University and an expansive network of international research associates, affiliated members and institutions working in partnership to further Film, Languages and Media in Education research.
Each member of the FLAME Research Group is committed to progressing language pedagogy by carrying out active research into multimodal approaches to teaching and effective use of films, media, visual literacies and audio-visual material in the classroom. Research demonstrates how such approaches are beneficial to both learner and teacher and should be integrated into language teaching curriculum and educational contexts around the world.
The Group’s research relates to Languages, Linguistics, Translation, Psychology, Sociology, Technology and Education, in addition to other areas. Core areas of research include:
- Language Pedagogy and Film
- Language Pedagogy and New Technologies
- Development of Language Teacher Training and Audio-Visual Media
The Centre is dedicated to developing scholarship and publication in its key areas of research, including doctoral research supervision and the organisation of conferences and other knowledge-exchange events. It aspires to grow a national and international network of likeminded scholars, researchers, associates and institutions who will collaborate with the Centre.
