About

The Intercollegiate Master’s Degree in Bilingual Education and Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) from University of Jaén is a fully online programme that trains teachers to implement bilingual education at all levels of education.

Overview

The Intercollegiate Master’s Degree in Bilingual Education and Content and Language Integrated Learning programme from University of Jaén aims to improve students’ linguistic abilities by focusing on practical English for use in the bilingual classroom. Students can create customised pathways according to their level and the subjects they teach with the aim of achieving a B2 or C1 level in general English and familiarising themselves with the specific English they will need to deliver bilingual teaching in Natural Sciences, Biology and Geology; Social Sciences, Geography and History; Mathematics, Physics and Technology; Physical Education, Music and Art; or Infant and Primary Education. This practical part of the degree will be supplemented with key methodological aspects allowing participants to implement student-centred teaching methods, use new technologies in the bilingual classroom, develop CLIL materials, familiarise themselves with evaluation techniques in the bilingual classroom, and coordinate or organise CLIL programmes.

The Intercollegiate Master’s Degree in Bilingual Education and Content and Language Integrated Learning aims to equip students to:

  • Be aware of the characteristics, similarities and differences between immersion, bilingual education and CLIL.
  • Use English at a B2 or C1 level across the four skills areas and be familiar with the sublanguages present in their discipline (Natural Sciences, Biology and Geology; Social Sciences, Geography and History; Mathematics, Physics and Technology; Physical Education, Music and Art; or Infant and Primary Education).
  • Be familiar with the main findings of research into these types of programmes and the main associations, networks and publications relating to them so that they can continue learning throughout their careers.
  • Be aware of how bilingual schools are organised and how they should be coordinated.
  • Teach a non-linguistic subject in their field through the medium of English.
  • Apply student-centred communicative methodologies in the CLIL classroom, such as project-based learning, task-based language teaching and cooperative learning.
  • Design integrated curricula for their subject containing linguistic content and draw up bilingual teaching programmes.

Careers
