Contract Research and consultancies
We have extensive experience in delivering contract research and consultancies with Commonwealth and state government bodies, international partners, private and NGO sector.
Most recent examples include: Video Relay Interpreting Evaluation (VicDeaf), Bridging the gap: teaching adaptations across disciplines and sharing content for curriculum renewal (DEECD).
Our cutting-edge research on the relationship between language, literatures and society may inform marketing, global branding and localisation, government and intercultural policy and communication.
Marketing professionals will benefit from our research on semiotics cultural flows and how these inform consumer needs for identity, community, and meaning.
Our experts in language education and didactics can provide guidance and expertise on curriculum design and development, including on the use of new and innovative technologies in language teaching. Some recent collaborations with governments, schools or professional associations have focused on the provision of support in this field to specific programs like French, Japanese, sign language or translation & interpreting.
Professional development programs
We offer a range of customised professional development programs developed to respond to industry needs. The most recent example is the Professional Development Program for Translators and Interpreters (Department of Premier and Cabinet).
Developing culturally inclusive workplaces is an important part of our research. If your organisation or department has a large international footprint and/or deals with stakeholders from culturally diverse backgrounds contact us to discuss a bespoke intercultural communication program for business professionals. We can provide customised capacity building on successful communication strategies to help you gain a competitive edge in the market.
Expert Lectures and industry briefing
Our academics are often invited by the government, public and private industry partners to present and give public lectures on their area of expertise, both nationally and internationally.
LLCL interns are high achieving students with current academic knowledge and research skills. They can bring in a fresh perspective and solutions to your organization, and become a great resource for specific projects or regular operations. Recent examples of internship agreements include students placed in multilingual international organisations based in the Asia-Pacific region, in private Australian companies or in the public sector.
