Very often, educational environments are a bit reluctant to introduce strategies that could better prepare students for real-life situations and modern-day jobs.
Nowadays, educators should link curriculum topics to real-life situations, making learning more meaningful, and guide students in the acquisition of competencies and life skills (including critical thinking, effective communication, and language fluency) in order to meet learners’ needs.
In this course, participants will find out the good news: effective teaching strategies can be easy to learn! With an appropriate mindset and the tools, such as PBL (Project-Based Learning) and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning), everyone can provide meaningful, useful learning experiences to students.
PBL offers students an opportunity to be more engaged in learning, providing them with a tangible goal, in order to work on both content and competencies.
Content and Language Integrated Learning
CLIL is a methodology for designing lessons that integrate learning of subject-specific content and foreign language skills.
Course participants will explore these two meaningful learning approaches, PBL and CLIL, as well as the assumptions, ideas, and strategies that come with them. They will also have the chance to develop easy, clever, tailor-made solutions for their subjects and groups of learners, using PBL, CLIL, or a combination of the two (PBLL).
PBLL (PBL+CLIL) provides opportunities for communication in the target language and for the application of accurate vocabulary while working on the specific contents (art, sciences, history, etc…). PBLL can improve students’ willingness to speak and the authenticity of their experience.
By the end of the course, participants will have learned about PBL, CLIL, and PBLL frameworks, the steps to design an effective unit, how to facilitate learning of contents and skills, how to scaffold teamwork, and the production of learning deliverables by students and, last but not least, practical strategies to guide students in a 360-degree growth process, which includes the acquisition of 21st-century skills and which boosts the level of engagement.
