Course overview and purpose:
The course is designed for teachers in diverse settings who are interested in teaching content and language simultaneously using the Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) method.
Through a combination of interactive group activities and experiential learning exercises, participants will acquire proficiency in the basics of CLIL methodology and gain practical knowledge of how to design and teach CLIL lessons effectively. This course will equip participants with techniques and methodologies for teaching a subject through the medium of a foreign language with the ultimate goal of contributing to students’ linguistic, cultural, and cognitive development. Participants will benefit from a combination of practical sessions, theoretical input, case discussions, and best practice sharing.
This course is designed to enhance the creation of interactive classroom materials that promote the improvement of students’ linguistic abilities and their intercultural proficiency. The goal is to explore teaching methodologies that foster inclusivity in the classroom, which encourages active participation and enhances critical thinking skills that are relevant in the 21st century.
Teachers will be given the opportunity to network and explore best practices in the field of CLIL with colleagues from different European countries.
This course is designed for teachers from pre-primary, primary, secondary, and adult education settings seeking to enhance and update their learning approach through the implementation of CLIL methodology. The course is also suitable for trainers, headmasters, school and education managers, administrators, counsellors, career counsellors, and other school staff seeking to implement CLIL as an innovative methodology for improving student engagement and intercultural competence.
There are no specific academic requirements for participation in this course. Applicants should have a good level of proficiency in English to enable them to actively participate in the course activities. Participants are encouraged to come with their own techniques to share and discuss with their colleagues during the course.
