Date: 3 November 2017
Venue: Fribourg, Switzerland
Local organiser: Haute Ecole pédagogique (HEP) of Fribourg, Switzerland; Foreign Languages Working Group, HEP Chamber of Swiss universities
Participants: 37 foreign language specialists in didactics, cantonal authorities with responsibility for student/teacher mobility, national mobility agency Movetia
The training day was focused on the ECML PluriMobil resources and was aimed at teacher trainers, specialists in didactics and institutional actors involved in mobility programmes. The event was designed to familiarise participants with the PluriMobil tool and the possibilities it offers for ensuring pedagogically sound mobility exchanges which integrate the experience of the participants and highlight intercultural communication. In addition, the event provided an opportunity for face-to-face exchange and networking to discuss the implementation of effective pedagogy related to mobility.
PluriMobil's learning scenarios formed the basis for putting work on language, social and intercultural competences into practice – from primary to secondary schools, vocational training and teacher education at tertiary level – in order to support potential implementation in the specific contexts of each participant, and to consider and initiate their development. The programme also enabled an exchange of existing mobility teaching practices.
