Following the publication of the CEFR Companion volume in 2020, the Council of Europe’s Education Department organised monthly Webinars in 2021 to help language professionals familiarise themselves with the key concepts of the CEFR and consider ways for integrating those into teaching and learning practices. Key concepts covered were action-oriented approach, digital agency in social practice and language education, plurilingualism in the classroom and engaging learners’ plurilingual and pluricultural competence, as well as mediation in relation to sign languages. The PowerPoint presentations, video recordings, classroom materials and background readings from these workshops are now being made available online at www.coe.int/lang-cefr.
