2008 Major European CLIL Conference


posted by Jürgen Kurtz, Karlsruhe University of Education, Germany

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is a dual-focused educational approach in which an additional language is used for the learning and teaching of both content and language. In October 2008, a major international CLIL conference will be held in Tallinn, Estonia. The overall theme is:

“CLIL Fusion – Multilingual Mindsets in a Multicultural World – Building Quality Learning Communities”

The conference will be addressing these key issues:

  • Successful CLIL learning communities in action (expected and unexpected success factors)
  • Uncovering CLIL methodology (spot-lighting good practice)
  • Learning and neuro-science (supporting learning in CLIL by applying new insights)
  • Inclusion and mainstreaming of CLIL (widening access and scope)
  • Intercultural dialogue (responding to cultural diversity in the classroom)

For more specific information, see the webpages of the European CLIL Consortium.
