Mediation in teaching, learning and assessment

This project sets out to develop a teaching guide for foreign language teachers of primary and secondary education who want to include cross-linguistic mediation in their pedagogical practices. This will contain information about the theory and practice of teaching, learning and assessing mediation together with examples of mediation tasks in different languages, which draw on the Companion Volume of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). A digital database, which will include tasks suitable for various educational environments, will also be produced.
