ECML experts: Kevin Schuck, The Netherlands; Susanne Staschen-Dielmann, United Kingdom.
Participants: 65 teachers of basic and secondary schools.
The participants had the opportunity to get to know CLIL in an interactive and interesting format. The workshop was pedagogical and didactical and full of elements of modern pedagogy. It provided insights into formative evaluation and very precise planning including the focus of a lesson, types of evaluation, methods used and organisational formats. These formats included approaches for all the pupils and students; they are supposed to reflect on the subject matter rather than focusing only on memory reproduction.
For German teachers and teachers who want to use German in a CLIL approach, this workshop was a unique opportunity. Most similar courses are based on English and German teachers have to redesign and adapt everything individually. We hope it will be possible to follow up on this meeting and support them in their further work.
We believe that the workshop was of great value to all participants and that they will use the knowledge they have gained in their lessons at schools.
We also hope that we will have further opportunities to organise other interesting workshops within the theme of modern languages.
