Dear CLIL ReN members,

Thanks to an invitation from the organisers of the AESLA conference 2014 (see ), the AILA CLIL Research Network will organise a symposium in Seville, Spain in April 2014. The symposium will start on Fri, April 4 (afternoon) with a Round Table Discussion on “CLIL and Social Change”, organised in collaboration with the AESLA conference.

The CLIL ReN Symposium proper will take place on Sat, April 5 (all day). 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 invite ReN members to send in a 300 words max. abstract, stating title, framework, methodology, (expected) results, relevance for educational practice, relevance for the main focus of the colloquium.
