Course Overview

This course is aimed for anyone interested in implementing    CILL methods in classes. With this course you will have experiment new approaches to make your lessons more engaging for your learners by learning how to use CILL Methods.

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is increasingly widespread in educational institutions of all levels and sectors across Europe. CLIL stands for Content and Language Integrated Learning and refers to teaching subjects such as science, history and geography to students through a foreign language.

The term CLIL was coined by David Marsh, University of Jyväskylä, Finland (1994): "CLIL refers to situations where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focused aims, namely the learning of content and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language."

CLIL is simply the teaching of subjects to students in a language that is not their own. So we have two elements to look at here:

The subject: This can be anything from academic subjects like physics and history, to even life skills taught in a classroom context.

The medium of instruction: This is the language used inside the classroom to explain the subject.

Just as “integrated” suggests, a CLIL class hits two birds with one stone: the subject matter and the target language.

But let’s be clear, CLIL is not a language class. It’s a subject class taught in a certain tongue. While students are learning about the subject matter, they’re also learning a new language alongside it.

Focusing on so many different digital tools and platforms learning a new language can be empowered.

During the course both methods will be engaged in order to more motivating and life-like environment at school to foster the language learning.

Objectives of the Course (Learning Outcomes)

At the end of this course participants will:

  • Become aware of key issues related to CLIL in education
  • Have greater understanding of CLILL  methods  and main aspects of it.
  • Understand the methodology of the CLILL METHODS in the classroom and its impact on students’ motivation and performances
  • Learn CLILL activities
  • Learn how to integrate new activities into their CLIL  lessons
  • Acquire the necessary skills in the mother and target language
  • Develop cognitive and social skills.
  • Learn how to plan and edit CLIL lesson
  • Explore the main ICT tools for creating a CLIL learning environment
  • Design, develop and implement CLIL lesson in their classes.
  • Familiarize participants with successful dissemination/promotion and exploitation principles of Erasmus Plus Ka1 project
  • Exchanging experiences in cooperative and collaborative learning process as long as in creativity and innovation;
  • Be familiar with the digital tools and platforms can be used in teaching and learning language
  • Create their own digital or online materials and assessment ways using various digital or online platforms
  • Share the best practice in teaching and learning, using ICT in the framework of CLIL , enabling teachers to become confident and competent enough to create a collaborative, interactive classroom experience.

 

Target Group

  • School management, school staff and all kind of teachers.

 

Preparation

Before the course,

  • A detailed pre-course questionnaire to indicate their level of experience, teaching backgrounds and training will be completed by participants.
  • They will also prepare a presentation to reflect their own teaching method.

 

Validation

  • A course participation certificate will be given to all participants.
  • A Europass CV will be filled together according to the skills and competences to be gained during the course  by participants.

 

Methodology

The practical course on European Project Planning helps individuals and organizations increase their efficiency rates on successful projects and create a strong European partnership for future collaboration. Participants will have the way paved for the interpretation of the documents for developing an effective project idea and will work on projects within small groups. Practical simulations will be carried out based on the use of the services, database and documentation by the EU. The pedagogical approach underlining this choice is that the training main objective is to support networking and knowledge sharing among teachers and learning facilitators in Europe and by giving them the opportunity to mutual exchange. Coursework will contain a mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. Participants will be given the theoretical information that they need to effectively create and implement their own learning solutions when implementing ICT and Web 2.0 within the classroom. Using this theoretical knowledge, they will then complete several practical tasks designed to create a digital classroom.
