Description and methodology:

Participants will become capable of demonstrating knowledge of how to integrate aspects of the natural and social science and arts and crafts curricula through the medium of English, using CLIL methodology (Content and Language Integrated Learning) in practical frameworks. They will develop a deeper understanding of the key questions involved in planning, carrying out and evaluating CLIL classes.

Teaching will mainly take place through the Moodle learning management system, which follows constructivist pedagogical principles and allows the personalisation of learning. There is an emphasis on collaborative learning and the exchange of ideas and materials, and each participant has access to a dedicated tutor and technical support. A free, preparatory module is available to learn how the platform works.


  • To analyse and become familiar with frameworks for teaching natural and social science and arts and crafts through English and to combine these to create a holistic approach to the curricula.
