Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) is a teaching approach where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focussed aims, namely the learning of content, and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language.
In this course, we will evaluate the potential of this approach by critically exploring and reflecting on CLIL methodological principles as applied to real-world projects and situations. We will try out various CLIL activities, games and techniques. The following aspects will be the cornerstones of this highly interactive and practice-oriented course:

• TALK (teachers’ awareness of language knowledge) in CLIL:
• Essentials of SLA for CLIL: From personal beliefs to informed EFL knowledge
• Genre, register, and academic vocabulary in CLIL
• Multilingualism in CLIL
• Technology and CLIL (WEBQuests, LexTutor, Lexical analysis, EVP
• Pedagogical language knowledge in CLIL and towards a methodology of CLIL
• CLIL – an overview of the Austrian context and a European perspective

This course is specifically targeted towards students with (at least) ONE content subject who want to improve their learners' foreign language competence by teaching the content subject through the target language English.
Students will be able to…
• incorporate CLIL teaching principles into their subject classrooms.
• design tasks and materials suitable for their respective CLIL situation.
• to self-assess their knowledge regarding the teaching of CLIL.
• to critically appraise different types of texts.
In order to achieve this, numerous pair or group work activities as well as interactive and creative formats should enable students to participate frequently in class discussions and are meant to provide for a motivating and stimulating atmosphere in class.
