    Webinar TitleLocating Intercultural Aviation Communication within Communities of Practice 

    Presenter: Hyejeong is a Teaching Associate at the School of Languages and Linguistics, University of Melbourne. She did her Ph.D. on exploring the construct of a pilot and air traffic controller communication. Her research interests include intercultural communication, English as a lingua franca, English for specific purposes, language testing, and language policy.

    Webinar Description: In this webinar talk, I will attempt to locate important features of this professional communication context within a model of communities of practice (Lave & Wenger, 1991; Wenger, 1998) and discuss those features under three constitute dimensions of the model, mutual engagement, a joint enterprise, and a shared repertoire. Based on grounded ethnography (Douglas, 2000), a recording of live radiotelephony communication collected from the Seoul Approach in Korea was analyzed, and expert informants' (i.e., pilots and air traffic controllers) feedback was elicited and analyzed. The radiotelephony took place between an Australian pilot and three Korean air traffic controllers over a towing request due to the hydraulic failure of the aircraft. The three air traffic controllers engaged in communication in a manner that one was replaced with another with better English proficiency each time. The main features commented on by the expert informants are discussed in the three dimensions of the communities of practice model, and implications are offered.
