Call for Papers: Working CLIL colloquium – DEADLINE 15 DECEMBER

We would like to draw your attention to the upcoming Working CLIL colloquium (16-17 March 2018 in Porto, Portugal) and the call for workshops and posters (deadline 15 December 2017). Working CLIL hosted by  by CETAPS – Centre for English, Translation and Anglo-Portuguese Studies.

As the practice of CLIL continues to grow within and across contexts through national and grassroots projects in school communities, the need for teacher education to develop awareness and competences for CLIL is even more urgent, as is the need to disseminate the outcomes of such experiences/practitioner research which contribute to the knowledge base of this educational approach.

It is with this in mind that the concept of “WORKING CLIL” has been developed with an emphasis on what is involved in making CLIL work as an effective and quality educational experience for teachers and learners. The dual purpose of this colloquium is thus to provide:

  • teacher education for CLIL through workshops given by experienced CLIL practitioners, teacher educators or scholars;
  • opportunities for poster presentations of experiences and practitioner or scholarly classroom-based research into CLIL.

The Colloquim is intended for ​content and language teachers from pre-primary to secondary education who are already engaged in CLIL or are considering future involvement, CLIL teacher educators, researchers involved in classroom-based inquiry, and scholars.

The 36th International Conference of the Spanish Society for Applied Linguistics (AESLA 2018) will be held 19-21 April 2018 in Cadiz, Spain. This year’s focus will be the ways in which Applied Linguistics, a well-established area of study and research, can contribute to enhance economic growth and societal wellbeing by integrating employability, internationalization and knowledge transfer issues across higher education. In this way, AESLA 2018 aims to raise awareness of the significant contribution of Applied Linguistics to these three key issues and explore the social challenges which scholars, researchers and students need to address when trying to build successful and sustainable collaboration between universities, business and the public sector in national, transnational and international contexts. More information on the conference can be found on conference’s website.

On Saturday morning, 21 April, an AILA CLIL ReN seminar will be held, with the following theme: “Combining approaches and methods in CLIL research: insights for successful pedagogy”. We would like to invite researchers to submit papers related to the theme. Abstracts should be submitted through the CLIL ReN website.
