CLIL for Learning

"CLIL refers to situations where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focused aims, namely the learning of content, and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language" (Marsh, 2002). 

Ensuring that students understand the content, reducing teacher-talk, increasing the focus on skills, influencing publishers to do likewise and getting students to learn language items that are always contextualized, always functionally necessary in the classroom are all great reasons to know the CLIL methodology better to implemented in your curricula, which is what this course wants to help you with. 

Teacher Training on STEM Education

   STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is a program that encourages people to develop interest and skills in these fields, with an emphasis on research, enquiry, and practical interaction.

 

   Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering and computer science, that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback and information processing. Through competitive collaboration, students are actively engaged in communication, critical thinking, and collaborative skills that will lead them to their goal successfully.

   This course displays the initiatives undertaken to build and promote strong social presence in STEM & Robotics in the education field.

Objectives

   This course wants to:

  • Raise awareness on the importance on STEM Education discussing all its characteristics;

  • Explore and discover the benefits that the STEM Education can foster;

  • Help participants aknowledge all the different ways in which the STEM Education can be implemented in everyday learning;

  • Furnish easy and accessible tools to apply the STEM Education to revolutionize your current teaching strategy;

  • Create a cross-cultural exchange and understanding with local colleagues on the benefits that the STEM Education can give and the ways in which can be best applied;

  • Develop critical thinking skills and problem solving strategies;

  • Provide hands-on and minds-on lessons; making math and science both fun and interesting helps to do much more than just learn;

  • Bring innovation in schools through active learning methodology tools;

  • Focus on STEM learning objectives: curiosity, problem solving and communication;

  • Learn how to integrate STEM pedagogy in everyday learning;

  • Provide an intuitive understanding of physical concepts;

  • Cultivate the ability to work collaboratively within teams.

 

Methodology

 

   Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones. By applying scientific knowledge, students are faced with real problems which they will try and solve. In addition, certain key aspects will be revealed, such as the investment of learners put into the project, the representation they have of the scientific phenomenon, or the time available. Moreover, students will not only be able to complete a project, but also to apply new technological tools, and acquire skills such as sketch drawing, mathematical calculations, new materials, concluding drafts, teamwork.

 

Preparation

   Prior to the start of the course, participants will receive a detailed programme outlining the content and structure of the course, as well as recommended reading and viewing material relevant to the course contents. They will also receive practical information about Berlin, including maps, places of interest and accommodation.
