Abstract

Combining empirical evidence and conceptual argument I argue that online project-work with the Global South can become a pillar for future pre-sessional language support at UK higher education institutions. The evidence-based nature of this work is key, but the papers presented in this submission move beyond methodology, examining the ethical and institutional prerequisites for (and potential barriers to) reciprocal North-South benefits in projects of this nature.
