Date: Friday 12 July
Time: 17:30-19:00
Place: L-821 (Main Library, Sophia University)

*Free to attend / Reservations not required

How to integrate content learning with language learning has been a central issue in current research on CLIL (Dalton-Puffer et al.,2010). In this talk I present our experience in developing an innovative approach, ‘Concept+Language Mapping’ (CLM) (Lin & He, 2017; He & Lin, forthcoming), by drawing on Lemke (1990)’s ‘thematic patterns’ theory to tackle the challenge of integrating language scaffolding into the teaching of complex content topics in secondary science classrooms in Hong Kong. Implications for content-based language education or ‘Soft CLIL’ will also be discussed.

Angel M. Y. Lin is Professor & Canada Research Chair, Faculty of Education, Simon Fraser University, Canada. She received her doctoral degree from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, in 1996. Since then her research and teaching have focused on classroom discourse analysis, bilingual and multilingual education, academic literacies, language across the curriculum, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), and language policy and planning in postcolonial contexts. She has published six research books and over 100 research articles and book chapters, and serves on the editorial boards of international research journals including Applied Linguistics, International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Critical Inquiry in Language Studies, Language and Education.

This lecture is partially supported by JSPS KAKENHI grant number 19K00800.
