In January 2022 the ECML launched a new 2-year project entitled “Building blocks for planning language-sensitive teacher education”. This project responds to the need in member states to strengthen languages awareness in teacher education programmes.
The purpose of the project is to develop resources in the form of building blocks for teacher educators and curriculum planners working with teachers of different languages and subjects. The building blocks include guidelines to help ensure that a focus on language-sensitive education is built into teacher education curricula and courses. The aim is to enable practising and future teachers to help their students to meet their language and communication needs.
This project is coordinated by Lukas Bleichenbacher, PH St. Gallen (Switzerland). More information is available on the project website.
