Music, performing arts and PE!

Universitat de Barcelona – Expert in CLIL / Curs Superior

An integrated approach to CLIL: blending music and performing arts with PE

Please note: this course is one of the parts of the Expert in CLIL but is available as an independent Curs Superior as well.

Description and methodology:

On this course, participants will become capable of demonstrating knowledge of how to integrate aspects of the music, performing arts and physical education curriculums 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 analyze and become familiar with frameworks for teaching music, performing arts and physical education through English and to combine these to create a holistic approach to both curricula
