Course overview and purpose:
The course CLIL Matters is for teachers who have started or are considering working with CLIL. The course gives a minimum theoretical background and maximum practical ideas to meet the needs of English Language Learners of various ages and language skills.
The course offers individual, pair and group activities, as well as role-plays and discussions that promote reflection and learning. The classes are based around 10 CLIL parameters regarding content, communication and cognition, and include the following: types of language in CLIL, vocabulary strategies, scaffolding for supporting content and language, promoting student-student interaction, guiding input and supporting output, learner autonomy, and evaluation. We will also look at CLIL materials and their adaptation, as well as classroom management strategies.
Teachers of any subject, educators, and school administrative staff
It is desirable for participants to have had some practice in teaching/working with Primary or Secondary pupils, an interest in CLIL, and also experience as an educator, school administration or another education-related position
Course dates are made available based on the availability of trainers but are “confirmed” only once the minimum number of participants is reached.
Course dates are listed Sunday to Sunday. The course usually takes place Monday to Friday and the full-day trip usually takes place on Saturday, so Sundays are arrival and departure days for those who book course, activities and accommodation. You can leave earlier if you book just the course.
If you are looking for dates either not listed above or “To be confirmed”, please pre-register to your favourite dates so we can track your interest, liaise with everybody to convey participants to the same dates and make them confirmed!
