Scaffolding learning: 6 strategies to use with learners in online settings
The tallest buildings in the world have been built using scaffolding or staging, a temporary structure used to support developments and construction. Education is no different. 

In this training we will explore how we can apply the principles of scaffolding for CLIL success. We will examine techniques that will give all students an opportunity to develop their language skills and knowledge simultaneously. We will also present a wide variety of ideas which you can use in your lessons to help students build the language skills and knowledge to last them a lifetime

On-campus and on-line CLIL settings for the 21st century students

Tuesday, 20th October,
18:00
On-campus and on-line CLIL settings for the 21st century students
The 21st century teacher needs to adapt to unexpected scenarios that may arise
in the future. Should a lesson be delivered in the same way and follow the same didactic sequence that we have been used to? Should the teacher have any specific skills to adapt to a new concept of learning? How should a teacher prioritize what is actually necessary during on-campus lessons? How to adapt the current syllabuses to unpredictable frameworks?

Critical Thinking in CLIL for secondary students.

Wednesday, 21st October,
18:00
Critical Thinking in CLIL for secondary students.
In the future, our students will be doing jobs we could not even possibly imagine now. How, as educators, can we prepare our students for such a future? One answer is to focus on 21st century skills, one of the most important of which is critical thinking. This is a key thinking skill in the age of the internet, where we are subjected to a constant flow of information, not all of which is reliable and unbiased. 
This webinar will look at practical ways that critical thinking skills can be supported and developed in the CLIL classroom. We’ll have a look at how to create and scaffold critical thinking activities which require students to enquire more thoroughly about language or ideas in order to reach a better understanding, to ask, ‘What’s really going on here?’
