Description

Implications of CLIL for classroom practice

Saturday, 2 December, 2017

While the dual focus on content and language learning has often been highlighted in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), there has been less discussion on what integrating means conceptually and at the level of classroom practices. By exploring data extracts from CLIL classrooms, this workshop will explore the nature of CLIL as a context both for second/foreign language learning and use, and for language-dependent content learning. The themes addressed will include the role of language and language awareness in content learning, translanguaging as practice and pedagogy, and the implications of that the intertwined nature of content and language has on assessment in CLIL.

Professor Tarja Nikul, University of Jyväskylä, Finland.

Tarja Nikula has extensive experience in teaching and research in the areas of language education and CLIL (both with a focus on training students and on training trainers). research specialisms include classroom discourse, CLIL and foreign language learning and teaching, discourse-pragmatics and subject-specific language.
