Mastering CLIL

online course for all teachers

Are you always looking for new CLIL materials and activities? In this online course, we will share lots of CLIL ideas, but more importantly, you will learn how to adapt and design your own materials. This way, you won't have to keep looking for new ideas!

Three CLIL coaches are available to help you with designing your lesson materials. There is an opportunity to work together with other CLIL teachers: sharing ideas and materials.

Rosie Tanner and CLIL&more have joined forces! This is a unique online course for CLIL teachers, with an emphasis on designing your own materials, personal attention and feedback.

CLIL&art level 1

CLIL workshop for art teachers

Which CLIL activities are suitable for the art classroom? How do I adapt these activities for my classes? 

 
- An introduction to the use of language support for art lessons.  
- Experience multiple ways to make analysing art interactive.  
- An introduction to the use of peer feedback for practical assignments.  


In level 1, you get to know various CLIL techniques that you can use in the art room. During the day's final project you will adapt these techniques for your own classes.

You will go home with practical ideas to try out on your next teaching day.  


All participants will have access to a private online forum for art teachers. A space to share ideas, talk about challenges and ask questions. A great way to stay in touch with fellow art CLIL teachers!

What teachers said about previous courses: 

  • “Enthusiastic and professional trainers” 

  • “In comparison to other CLIL courses, this course has really made sense to me. More focus on Art and language than Language and other subjects” 

  • “Enjoyed the course very much. Good to practice and talk about teaching art and the difficulties in the lessons.” 

  • “It was practical and inspiring” 

  • “I liked the friendly communication and the involvement of all the participants.”

CLIL&classroom management

CLIL workshop for all teachers

Implementing CLIL activities can sometimes feel daunting for teachers.  
From handing out mini-whiteboards to controlling the noise during some of the activities. How do you prevent your classroom from turning into complete chaos?  

What do you expect from your bilingual students, and how do you ensure students live up to these expectations? 
 
In this practical course we look at several techniques and concepts to make your CLIL lesson run smoothly:  
- Analysing the culture of your classroom  
- developing time-saving routines 
- Exploring a set framework for complete instructions 
- sanctions, rewards, and behaviour feedback  
- working together as a team  

To make the most of this workshop and to have a real shot at improving your classroom management in CLIL, we advise you to come with one or more colleagues. Even though there are plenty of individual elements to classroom management, it is always set in the team and school culture. A lot of benefits can be had by working together.  

Price: 320 euros, including lunch and beverages.

Designing CLIL materials

CLIL workshop for all teachers

What will you learn?  

You will learn how to design small projects (or a series of lessons) based on the PBL method*, meeting both language and subject goals.  

At the end of the course, you will   

  • know how to develop a series of lessons or a project based on meaningful situations and questions, using a helpful format.  

  • experience different ways (activities) to provide input and give instructions.  

  • have a repertoire of techniques to support pupils in both language and content  

  • have designed a project (or lesson series) you could put into practice straight away.  You will have thought about warmers, time schemes, instructional techniques, group work, (formative) feedback, and assessment.

How much time does it take?

  • We ask for one hour of preparation before the course starts.

  • Two course days.

  • Between these two days, you plan half a day with your colleague(s) to work on the materials. When you hand this in, you will receive written feedback on your work.


Who is this course for?  

For this course, you need to enroll with one or two of your colleagues; for the best results, include both language and subject teachers. You will be working on a project with your colleagues.  
The course is suitable for experienced CLIL teachers and beginners. 

  

Some examples of projects and cross-curricular lesson series:   

History/geography/religion/CKV + Music + English: Which topics/struggles/problems are described in protest songs? And how is this expressed in music? Students explore which modern-day issues are suitable for protest songs.  Based on their findings, the pupils write their protest songs. 

Biology + Arts + English: The sea is a habitat for many different animals.  We find different animals at varying depths of the sea. Students explore the different sea zones and how light affects sea life and colour.  Students show their knowledge of sea zones, classification, and art techniques by painting an underwater world and describing one of the animals in their watercolour painting.   

Mathematics + Geography + English: In mathematical graphs, we work with coordinates. But on the globe, we use latitude and longitude. What is the difference, and what are the similarities? And what about GPS? Pupils make a scavenger hunt with these different ways of using coordinates.  
Globi: Many tto-schools aim to include global citizenship in their curriculum. During this course, you can spend time with your colleagues designing materials/projects suitable for your school.  
   

It is possible to do the course with teachers from the same subject, but it will be more challenging to include language goals and to connect the materials to the broader curriculum.   

  

*Project-based learning was described in “Keep it real with PBL” as   
‘an experience in which students are pulled through the curriculum by a meaningful situation to explore, an engaging real-world problem to solve,  or a challenge to design or create something ....To demonstrate what they learn, students create quality products to present their work to other people” (Hallerman, Larmer, & Mergendoller, 2011)    
   
How does this connect to CLIL?   
PBL & CLIL offers students a natural way of language learning through authentic project work. This will motivate students as well as teachers.   
When subject and language teachers work together to create lessons or projects, it becomes easier to focus on both language and subject goals.  

Costs: first teacher 590 euro, second/third teacher 490 euro

The course takes place with a minimum of 8 participants. 

The group will have a maximum of 20 participants.
