Cpd Clil Catalyst Language Learning Education

In recent decades, CLIL has become an educational and social reality in many parts of the world. Numerous international initiatives at different educational levels have been undertaken in that joint effort to integrate subject matter and foreign languages. Despite implementation differences, a common goal has been to find a coherent answer to the need for increased language competence and communication. Much research undertaken in CLIL has been conducted comparing the outcomes of CLIL with more traditional contexts, in what has come to be termed non-CLIL contexts, in order to answer the important question of whether CLIL can produce better results than other educational contexts in terms of linguistic and academic content outcomes. However, more recently we are witnessing an ever-growing need for more process-oriented research to evaluate the many facets of the approach itself, an evaluation that should include not only language and content outcomes, but also instructional practices, classroom interaction, and teacher education.

The aim of this session is to look at both product- and process-oriented research to understand how the integration of content and language should be undertaken in the classroom.   Contact person: Emmanuelle Labeau -   [email protected]
