This activity addresses the development of subject literacies and transferable skills in contexts where learners are operating in more than one language, e.g. education of migrant children, content and language integrated learning (CLIL). The pluriliteracies approach will enable workshop participants to facilitate deep learning across languages, disciplines and cultures and it will provide ideas for adapting teaching approaches and materials to facilitate deep learning.
- Teacher trainers;
- Curriculum writers.
