The ECML website has just been relaunched with a new look and a series of new features.
The biggest change is the showcasing of the Centre’s work around nine key themes : Plurilingual Education; Early Language Learning; New Media in Language Education; Employment and Languages; Evaluation and Assessment; Mobility and Intercultural Learning; Migrants and Language Education; Signed Languages and Content and Language Integrated Learning.
Each theme contains: an introduction; a wide variety of practical resources and reference tools produced by the ECML, by the Language Policy Unit and by other organisations at European and national level; recent ECML projects and offers of training and consultancy activities to ECML member states.
Over the coming months we plan to further develop this area on an ongoing basis with new resources from the Centre’s current projects as well as news, related research, videos, interactive materials and details of activities, conferences and experts.
A new video on the homepage explains in 2 minutes how the Centre operates and what it can offer to professionals involved with education and in particular language education. The clip was developed through the project ECML publications for plurilingual and intercultural education in use (PIU) and is now available in English, French and German.
The member state pages on the new site now offer an overview of national involvement in the ECML’s activities, the work of the contact points in 33 countries and access to a host of resources related to national education system.
These are just a few of the many new ‘treasures’ we invite you to discover!
