Event description
Curriculum Integrated Language Teaching

About this Event

Our conference seeks to move the development of curriculum integrated language learning in Anglophone-dominant and similar contexts forward by bringing together expert researchers and practitioners to share and discuss good practice, practical ideas for the classroom and effective ways of working, in order to increase the motivation, confidence and progress of our learners. In response to the growing linguistic diversification and plurilingualism of an expanding Europe and in an increasingly globalised society, most European countries have successfully developed Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) as part of their national curriculum policy. The UK’s progress in bilingual education has lagged behind other European countries, and we have much to learn from them. The recent drive for deeper learning and a rich curriculum in England exemplified in the 2019 Ofsted framework has created an increased interest in developing practice in CLIL and pluriliteracies further.

This conference welcomes researchers, teachers and trainee teachers and teacher educators interested in using curriculum integrated language learning techniques to increase motivation, confidence, attainment and intercultural awareness.

We welcome submissions for contributions from researchers around the following themes:

  • sustainability (i.e., CLIL’s ongoing expansion and take up into new contexts),
  • pedagogy (i.e., the situated nature of teaching/learning in terms of CLIL as a pedagogic model and related pedagogies),
  • social justice (i.e., engagement of cultural and linguistic diversity, with specific attention to students from EAL backgrounds in Anglophone-dominant contexts).

We welcome submissions for contributions from practitioners in the following areas:

  • The impact of CLIL and immersion techniques on pupils’ motivation and progress
  • Practical ideas for increasing cognitive challenge, motivation and engagement in the primary and secondary classroom
  • CLIL approaches to EAL, ESP and TESOL
  • Pluriliteracies
  • How curriculum integrated learning can support pupils who will take England’s language exams
  • What we can learn from other countries

 

These may include presentations/ discussions of:

 

  • How languages can be integrated into the wider curriculum (primary and secondary)
  • CLIL pedagogical approach and EAL, ESP and TESOL
  • CLIL’s development where L2 is not English
  • Pluriliteracies pedagogies
  • Disciplinary literacies
  • Cognitive Discourse Functions
  • Transition KS2-3 
  • Motivation /engaging learners 
  • Optimal cognitive challenge  
  • Making language real language: using the target language for real purposes
  • Developing intercultural awareness
  • Approaches to immersion learning

 

Invited Chairs and Discussants include:

Professor Do Coyle, Chair in Languages Education and Classroom Pedagogy at the University of Edinburgh, UK

Russell Cross, Associate Professor in language and literacy education, at the University of Melbourne, Australia

Dr Kim Bower, National Teaching Fellow and Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Sheffield Institute of Education, Sheffield Hallam University, UK

 

Keynotes (tbc)

*ADiBE

This keynote will present the findings from the 3-yr long ADiBE project which brought together key figures in the field of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) from six countries (Spain, Austria, Finland, Germany, Italy, and the UK) and focussed on the integration of all students in CLIL classrooms, regardless of their socioeconomic status, educational background, or achievement level. Research in the 6 countries identified key difficulties and outstanding practice and produced a guide for teachers and a teacher training module – both available to all on the web when published.

*EAL, CLIL and Pluriteracies

 

Invited Practitioners from successful CLIL, Pluriliteracies and EAL and projects include: 

Queen Katharine Academy, Peterborough
