At the AGM reports will be given by members of the Steering Group and representatives of the three nations, followed by open discussion on these and other matters. The afternoon Workshop, also open to members of all UCML Member Organisations, is on ‘Surviving and Thriving: Developing a Toolkit for Languages in Difficult Times’

The afternoon session for the July 2019 UCML Plenary will be an interactive workshop devoted to the topic of Surviving and Thriving: Developing a Toolkit for Languages in Difficult Times. The workshop will be organised around small break-out groups which will discuss thematic areas and recommendations on how language units, departments and schools can negotiate change positively and learn from the experiences of others.Colleagues who sign up to the work shop will be invited to contribute to a survey beforehand that will help structure discussions. The major outcome will be the creation of a ‘tool kit’ for Languages following the event which will be disseminated widely.
