Policy and practice of CLIL in Europe and beyond: Workshop at Sophia University with Christiane Dalton-Puffer

Sophia University and SOLIFIC are pleased to announce the details of our annual CLIL workshop. We are delighted to be able to welcome Christiane Dalton-Puffer from Vienna University. Professor Dalton-Puffer is a well-established authority on CLIL with numerous publications to her name.

The session will be held in Tokyo on Saturday 21st and Osaka on Sunday 22nd of February 2015.

In the first part of this lecture-workshop I will discuss the concept of CLIL and different forms of its implementation. We will deal with reasons for its propagation at national and supra-national level in Europe and elsewhere, considering the influence of official language policies, the positions of grassroots stakeholders such as teachers, students and parents, as well as learning outcomes. In the second part, CLIL practice will move into the centre of attention. Considering CLIL classrooms as learning events, we will put different questions to the practices that can be observed in real CLIL classrooms: What characterizes CLIL lessons as spaces for L2 language use? How might this impact on the language learning that takes place? Are there language practices that particularly support content learning? All sections of the session will be supported by evidence from CLIL classrooms including video clips.

The session will be held in Tokyo on Saturday 21st and Osaka on 22nd of February 2015.
