How to get involved?
Individuals with a special interest and professional background in the topic of this particular project are invited to take up contact with the ECML National Nominating Authority in their country so that they can be considered for participation in the corresponding project workshop.
Project workshop, 16-17 November 2022
Building on the survey results as well as on previous ECML projects, the project will propose guiding principles for CLIL LOTE and recommendations to facilitate CLIL LOTE transitions across educational stages (primary, secondary, tertiary education), taking into account a pluralistic approach to languages. The overall aim of the workshop is to familiarise participants with the rationale of CLIL LOTE concepts with a focus on transitional stages and to present and evaluate relevant tools which have been developed by the project team.
The workshop will focus on piloting concrete materials developed by the CLIL LOTE network’s eight working groups to show ways in which CLIL LOTE transitions can be strengthened. These consist of scenarios for the further development of curricula and teacher education; teaching materials that, among other things, build on the CEFR; portfolio examples and suggestions for how to establish collaboration between schools, teachers, and students at different levels of education. The materials will be further developed after the workshop based on input from the workshop participants.
Furthermore, we will invite the participants to share their experiences of transitions between different educational stages, e.g. between primary and secondary education, in CLIL LOTE and to contribute to the project website with scenarios, examples of teaching materials and videos from their contexts.
