Image Course content, showing the introductory and first two core modules. Participation in the Forums is an integral part of the course.
This five-week 100% online course in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is intended for teachers who wish to integrate a CLIL approach in their classrooms.
The course is most suitable to teachers of younger learners between the ages of approximately eleven and sixteen years old, but would also be of interest to teachers of adults who wish to know more about CLIL.
The course is very practical in nature in as much as generic lesson plans are included as models for course participants to try out in their own classrooms and to further develop: the principles inherent in these model lesson plans can be applied to any topic area within a CLIL syllabus.
The course consists of five core modules (two shown, right) intended to be completed one per week.
However, participants will most usually spend considerable classroom time experimenting with the ideas and materials offered on the course and will engage in discussion with other participants and the course tutor on a regular basis on the course forums.
The course is fully online and there are no further costs to participants beyond the course fees.
Participants do not need expert computer skills: a knowledge of Word and how to use email are all the skills required. Technical back-up and assistance is provided as and if required, but it is in fact only rarely required.
Course start dates 2013
The next start dates for this 5-week course are as follows:
- January 21st—February 24th
- April 22nd—May 26th
- October 14th—November 17th
Note that courses will not begin unless there is a minimum of 10 participants.
Length & time commitment
It is notoriously difficult to predict exactly how many hours an online course will take any given student. For our courses, we believe you should estimate at least 5-6 hours per module for the reading and completion of the tasks set, giving around 30 hours minimum for this particular course.
That estimate excludes the amount of class time you use for experimenting with the ideas and material from the course.
You should aim to complete each course module within 7 to 10 days.
The course tutors are all International House Barcelona CELTA and/or DELTA course tutors with many years of teaching and teacher training experience.
Candidates will be awarded an International House Barcelona Online Training Certificate at the end of the course.
