    European Day of Solidarity between Generations – Events

    In May 2011  approximately 70 people arrived at the “Pfefferwerk” in Berlin to jointly celebrate the European Day of Solidarity between generations.

    Community groups were invited to a day of action which invited dialogue between the generations in general and the integration of international youth work and intergenerational learning in particular.

    Retelling life stories: exchange programme involving young and older people from France and Germany

    Young German and French students visit the elderly in nursing homes in both France and Germany to find out about the resident’s life stories. These stories will be documented through video recordings and images made ​​by the young people themselves who will be working closely with a Franco-German facilitation team. Each exchange visit is completed by a celebration that brings together the different generations.

    Beatbox im Pflegeheim: how intergenerational music was made in a Stuttgart nursing home

    In a Stuttgart nursing home young students and trainees found out how rewarding it can be to spend time with the elderly. By experimenting  with making music and musical instruments together (including Beat Boxing!), the young and old experienced the world through each others eyes.

    This educational project won the “JUGENDSOZIAL STIFTUNG ZEIT FÜR MENSCHEN” Award from the Council for Sustainable Development (RNE). It is one of 40 winners in the RNE – competition ” Intergenerational Dialogue in Practice – Citizens Initiate Sustainability ”

    Pioneering ARC Linkage Project ‘Connecting young second language learners and older bilinguals’ sparks off language and community activities in Queensland!

    Assoc/Professor Marisa Cordella, Chief investigator of the ARC Linkage Project, initiated exciting research projects that span all over Queensland. The activities connect young language students with community resources, link up classroom learning with real-life encounters and foster social inclusion of cultural groups and older migrants in Australian society.

    The project ‘Connecting classroom 2 communities’ (CC2C*) effectuates students’ awareness of people from different cultural backgrounds they live side by side with, in the context of their own culture. Students from Year 6 to Year 12 were introduced to a series of cultural events within their own community and were encouraged to reflect upon their experience in different ways. Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Indonesian and Spanish learners from eight Independent Schools* located from Toowoomba to Townsville in Queensland were involved in this project, which took place in 2013.

    The research project “Language and cultural learning: an intergenerational approach” (LCLIA*) is based on the successful encounters between young language learners and older migrants in Melbourne (ARC Linkage Project: Connecting young second language learners and older bilinguals). At Moreton Bay Boys’ College in Brisbane Year 10 students met with older Spanish migrants on a weekly basis during several weeks in 2013). The research involved investigating students’ language development, students’ attitude towards ageing and migrants’ experience, extending and continuing on results and outcomes of the ARC Linkage Project.

    November 2012, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship, The Hon. Nicholas Kotsiras launches project DVD

    The Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship, the Hon. Nicholas Kotsiras officially launched a research project DVD on last month at Clayton.

    This occasion marked a milestone of the highly successful ARC Linkage project ‘Connecting younger second language learners and older bilinguals’.

    For the past three years a team of researchers from the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (Dr Marisa Cordella and Dr Hui Huang from the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics, and Professor Colette Browning from the School of Primary Health Care) have been investigating the effects of regular meetings between Year 11 and Year 12 language learners and older migrant seniors.

    The project has been an example of cross-faculty collaboration and cross-fertilisation of knowledge, where medical and linguistic approaches have been utilised to provide a comprehensive understanding of intergenerational and intercultural encounters.

    Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education), Professor Adam Shoemaker and the Deans of both Faculties – Professor Rae Frances and Professor Christina Mitchell – were invited to present the benefits of such interdisciplinary research and to celebrate with participants, partners and supporters as well as the research team.

    “The project is a successful example of how to implement the aims set out in the Federal Government’s White paper on Asia as well as the State Government’s Vision for Citizenship in a Multicultural Victoria, in relation to languages education, volunteer and senior engagement and multicultural education, to foster social inclusion in a diverse multicultural community.” Dr Cordella said.

    The DVD completes a package of resources developed on the basis of research outcomes. These resources (the DVD, an interactive project website, a brochure and a kit) have been designed to assist educators in the implementation of similar future initiatives in the wider community. A series of workshops is being offered to teachers in Victoria and other states to train them as future facilitators.

    All resources and more information are available on the website.

    The celebration was held in memory of the mastermind of this project, the late Professor Michael Clyne.

    Vice-Chancellor Professor Ed Byrne

    “Monash University is distinguished by our commitment to working with the community in which we are situated. 

    We realise that while we have great strengths, we do not have a monopoly on knowledge. Creating networks between the university and individuals and other organisations in the community is thus one of the best ways in which we can carry out our mission to deliver education and research that improves the human condition. 

    This project highlights the strengths of such an approach. It reflects the value that Monash places on being an inclusive institution. 

    Language acquisition brings to an individual new concepts, an understanding of different cultures and novel opportunities for social interaction and exchange. By promoting language learning, we bring people together.”

     

    Dean of Faculty of Arts Professor Rae Frances

    “… And I think this project is a beautiful example of how we have married that expertise from the Arts Faculty in the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics with people from the medical Faculty to bring together languages and 
    health in a really creative way.

    And as I think we have seen that this project having generations learning from each other has so many benefits, it doesn’t just improve the language skills of the students but it also improves the wellbeing of people who are empowered through parting that knowledge.

    And it also improves the wellbeing of a group as a whole and enriches our society generally… “

    Testimonial: Two participating students of Chinese

    Testimonial from two students at Caulfield Grammar School. These students participated in the Chinese program in 2012. Students of Chinese and Chinese seniors enhanced their language and culture learning through a real life experience in a Chinese restaurant.

    “The Monash University’s Intergenerational Research Program allowed us, Year 11 and 12 students, to interact with an older generation with a language other than our mother-tongue, in this case either Chinese, German or Spanish.  To start the program off, we had an orientation meeting where we could meet each member one by one; following that each day of the program consisted of us staying in groups of two where we could have conversations. The conversations we had with them typically took place at school, revolving around topics both parties were familiar with, such as food, school, and family. On one instance, we had an opportunity to have this conversation in an authentic Chinese restaurant where we could practice our Chinese, experience Chinese cuisine, as well as learning the Chinese way of having a meal, such as tapping the table with two fingers after having a cup of tea poured as a sign of respect.

    Participating in this program provided us with a unique opportunity that had many benefits.  Communicating with the assigned elderly partner whose first language is Mandarin pushed us to speak more of the language than just resolving to English and therefore improving our language skills in both speaking and listening. The sessions also enhanced our confidence when using the language to carry out a full conversation.

    Other than the linguistic aspect of the program, it also gave us the chance to learn from our partner about the Chinese culture, which we found very interesting, as it is so different to Australian culture.

    It was a great decision to get involved in the project, as it has definitely made an impact on our ability to recognise, learn, and then utilise more Mandarin vocabulary, improved many non-linguistic skills and has also been tremendous fun.”

    Thomas Mann & Ellie Zajko [Caulfield Grammar School, August 2012]

     

     

    Testimonial: A student reflecting on experiences of the Chinese and German program at his school

    Starting from the 19th March, Year 11 and 12 German and Chinese students were given the opportunity by Monash University to take part in their Intergenerational Project. This involves fortnightly sessions where the students get the privilege to speak with older native speakers from Germany or China.

    This program benefits both parties. The native speakers are able to share their knowledge and interact with the younger generations, and the students not only learn about their partner’s culture and life, but also have an amazing opportunity to speak and listen to their respective languages in preparation for their end of year examinations.

    Having 9 sessions throughout terms 2 and 3 means that all participants get to know their partners quite well and it is evident that students become more confident with the language throughout each session.

    When discussing family, friends, holidays, aspirations and lifestyle, we realize that although some differences are shown in the lives of the students and of their partners, there are an immense number of similarities. These differences and similarities are very interesting to think and talk about and many students are taking what they are learning from their partners’ perspective of life into their own lives outside of the sessions.
