Meeting Description:

The Institute of English and Institute of English Cultures and Literatures, University of Silesia, are happy to announce the CLIL Conference2013 on

Modernizing Educational Practice
Perspectives in Content and Language Integrated Learning
Upper Silesia, Poland
April 4-6, 2013

The conference is dedicated to academics and university lecturers, representatives of central and local educational authorities, non-governmental organizations and school teachers. The event is a great occasion for meeting experts in CLIL working in a varied set of areas.

Plenary Speakers:

Prof. Maria Dakowska (University of Warsaw, Poland)
David Marsh (United Arab Emirates)
Peeter Mehisto, PhD (United Kingdom)
Prof. Olivier Mentz (Pädagogische Hochschule Freiburg, Germany)
Prof. Mirosław Pawlak (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland)
Prof. Dieter Wolff (Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany)

Conference Theme:

Since language instruction without a distinctively targeted content seems as untenable as squaring of the circle, the conference expresses a firm belief in the golden means philosophy that may facilitate keeping balance between fostering communication skills and developing human capitals in various branches of economy. Hence, the conference has been designed as a forum of interdisciplinary academic dialogue on CLIL methodologies as well as purely practical consequences of implementing CLIL pedagogies in institutional educational practices, human resources management, labour market modelling, and multilateral political cooperation.

Call for Papers:

Papers are expected to address possible juxtapositions and intersections of the following:

- CLIL-focused theory and research: experiences and future perspectives
- CLIL in SLA theories (productive and receptive skills, linguistic and communicative competences)
- Psychological and psycholinguistic perspectives on CLIL (attitudinal patterns, motivations, individual learner differences, cognitive and hermeneutic strategies)
- Sociolinguistic theories and discourses (bilingual and multilingual education, international language policies, institutional implementation of CLIL initiatives)
- CLIL classroom discourse and management (classroom discourse, classroom interaction analysis, curriculum design, qualitative/quantitative assessment and evaluation, code switching)
- Socio-cultural considerations (intercultural competence development, multiculturalism in theory and practice, ethnic/language minority classrooms)
- Socio-economic contexts of CLIL implementation initiatives (labour market modelling, human resources management)

Proposals for original and previously unpublished papers (20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for questions) or workshops (45 minutes) reporting on research related to the theme of the conference or posters regarding the issues are welcome for presentation at the conference.

Abstract Submission:

Abstracts of papers, workshops or posters in the range of 200-250 words should be submitted by email to CLIL2013interia.pl by November 15, 2012.
