Given an increasingly globalized world, the introduction of multilingual approaches employing CLIL methodology and the spread of the competence-based curriculum, the need for students to be able to communicate in foreign languages (FL) within the education system has made it essential to take a fresh look at teaching and introduce innovative methods into the foreign language classroom.
In institutional contexts like schools or universities, innovation in foreign language learning must necessarily involve collaboration between, on the one hand, teachers who are experts in a particular foreign language and, on the other, teachers who are using the foreign language as a vehicle for teaching non-language subjects and/or using it as a medium of communication within international projects.
Two itineraries are available within this Teacher Development for Foreign Language Education and Content and Language Integrated Learning programme at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, one focusing on Foreign Language Education (FLE), the other focusing on Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).
