About this event
How do I know my student knows? How to equate language level with cognitive level?
If you want to develop your students’ subject specific literacies, this training workshop is for you! Suitable for both language teachers and subject teachers, this training activity is a hands-on practical experience driven by the theory of pluriliteracies.
The workshop is led by experts from the European Centre for Modern Languages. It will take participants from the basics of content and language integrated learning (CLIL) to an understanding of deeper learning episodes that support the transfer of learning across language and subjects, based on the Pluriliteracies model.
The goals of this training workshop are to:
- provide you with the content, expertise and time to develop your own deeper learning episode plans;
- share materials that you can adapt and use as models in your own practice.
- Teacher educators;
- University educators;
- Heads of schools.
Results and benefits
- A deeper understanding of the role of CLIL and the transition to pedagogical and didactic approaches to Pluriliteracies for Deeper Learning.
- Understanding of deeper learning episodes and their role in progression and transfer.
Do you know of a creative, innovative and inspirational language learning initiative, or one that promotes the importance of languages?
The European Language Label Award (ELLA) is coordinated by the European Commission. It highlights and rewards innovative initiatives in language teaching, learning and promotion, and brings these initiatives to the attention of the public along with professionals in the languages field.
The ELLA is open to all fields of education and training. No project is too big or too small, and both accredited and non-accredited initiatives are encouraged to apply. Whether it’s a football team, university, community group, school, youth group, company, or choir – we want to hear your stories of language learning being brought to life!
ELLA applications must support one or more of these six categories:
- Engaging language learning environments
- Multilingual schools and classrooms
- Language-friendly society
- Languages for the future
- Increasing awareness and changing perceptions
- Using technology to enhance language learning techniques
