Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

0:00 / 0:00

Course Overview
This course combines the latest in best practice in general pedagogy, the utilisation of certain online tools for education, and the integration of content and language in the modern classroom. In this course, the participants will be given a general introduction to the key tenets of the integration of content into the language classroom, and the integration of language development into the subject classroom.

Course Aims
The primary aim of this course is to give each participant a clear idea of the nature of content and language integration and to help them build a roadmap for the integration of these two areas in their classroom. This course gives participants practical advice and tools to help them through this process. The creation of a community of best practice among the participants of this course helps the course aims develop and personalise.

Who is this course suitable for?
This course has been created with a focus on teachers who are currently in the process of integrating CLIL workings into their classroom. It will support teachers who have a limited experience of CLIL, and give a solid groundwork of information and best practice to teachers who have never experienced a CLIL lesson.

What is in this course?
There is blend of synchronous and asynchronous content and task, as evidenced in the timetable. This allows for a great deal of differentiation which ensures that the course is able to focus on supporting each teacher within the realm of their own particular needs and expectations.
