The 18th world congress of Applied Linguistics will be held in Rio de Janeiro, July 23rd -18th. At this conference the ReN Day will be Tuesday July 25, and the CLIL Research Network is pleased to announce the symposium “Individual Factors in CLIL teachers and learners.”
Please note that ReN participants follow regular conference registration procedures (i.e., there is no separate ReN registration). Early bird registrations close 28 February. More details.
One item we’re keen to discuss is an application to renew the ReN, and gather ideas on what the next three-year plan might look like. The deadline for submissions is 31 Oct 2017 so AILA 2017 will be a timely opportunity to hear everyone’s suggestions.
The following papers will be presented during the symposium:
- Individual factors influencing CLIL student choices in the transition from primary to secondary (Elisa Hidalgo-McCabe & María Fernández-Agüero)
- CLIL students’ motivation towards learning academic subjects in English (Thomas Somers & Ana Llinares)
- Underresearched, but highly relevant in language learning: EFL self-concept as an individual factor in CLIL environments (Dominik Rumlich & Julia Reckermann)
- ‘What about me?’ – Shaping CLIL beliefs among Austrian university lecturers (Petra Kletzenbauer & Ulla Fuerstenberg)
- Chicken or egg? Motivation for or from bilingual education in the Netherlands (Tessa Mearns, Do Coyle & Rick de Graaff)
- CLIL can vary in each teacher and learner (Shigeru Sasajima)
