"CLIL refers to situations where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focused aims, namely the learning of content, and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language" (Marsh, 2002). Ensuring that students understand the content, reducing teacher-talk, increasing the focus on skills, influencing publishers to do likewise and getting students to learn language items that are always contextualised, always functionally necessary in the classroom are all great reasons to know the CLIL methodology better to implement it in your curricula, which is what this course wants to help you with.
Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use:
Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.
Raise awareness on the importance on CLIL discussing all its characteristics;
Explore and discover the benefits that the CLIL methodology can foster;
Help participants aknowledge all the different ways in which CLIL can be implemented in everyday learning;
Furnish easy and accessible tools to apply CLIL to revolutionize your current teaching strategy;
Create a cross-cultural exchange and understanding with local colleagues on the benefits that CLIL can give and the ways in which can be best applied.

I think that CLIL is very important in my job as a teacher. Understanding the techniques and the thinking behind CLIL will allow me to be a better professionale. The training program was great.
Celano is a nice little city. During my training I also had enough time to sit back and relax a bit. The training was very well put and all the info very useful.
I liked the course! The topic was very well organized and in general the training provided me with many new information and tools I can use at school.
