“CLIL as an educational platform for innovative language pedagogies”

One of the conspicuous features of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) is its flexibility in adding useful principles and pedagogies to its repertoire to enhance students’ conceptual, linguistic, cognitive and interpersonal competencies. Based on this view of CLIL, I have trained Japanese primary, secondary and tertiary teachers in existing and emerging CLIL teaching skills through my books and professional development courses. In this interactive and hands-on workshop, I would like to share some of my training materials and tasks with participants, who will receive both theoretical input and practical ideas in such possible additions to the CLIL classroom as procedural content knowledge and translanguaging.

The lecture is organized within the Seminar in English Language Teaching and Learning (2016).
