Meeting Description:

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.

Prof. Olivier Mentz (Pädagogische Hochschule Freiburg, Germany)
Prof. Mirosław Pawlak (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland)

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.

We would like to inform you that the deadline for abstract submission has been prolonged until 30 November 2012. Please feel free to send your abstracts to CLIL2013interia.pl together with the registration form.
