Thanks to an invitation from the organisers of the AESLA conference 2014, the AILA CLIL Research Network will organise a symposium in Seville, Spain in April 2014.
The symposium will start on Fri, April 4 (18.30-20h) with a Round Table Discussion on “CLIL and Social Change”, organised in collaboration with the AESLA conference. Right after the roundtable, a visit to the Reales Alcazares will be organized, for which the Roundtable participants are kindly invited (food and drinks not included).
The CLIL ReN Symposium proper will take place on Sat, April 5 (9h-17h). The main focus of this symposium is Beyond CLIL: The impact of CLIL on non-CLIL teaching and learning
1.CLIL and foreign language teaching: How does CLIL affect foreign language teaching in different national and cultural contexts?
2.CLIL and non-CLIL across contexts: How does CLIL affect non-CLIL/L1 content teaching in different subjects?
3.CLIL and learner content achievement: How does CLIL impact on content education in terms of practices, processes and outcomes?
We have selected ten high-quality papers for the symposium. Titles and abstracts can be found here.
