Be an expert in CLIL with Universitat de Barcelona

//14/09/23
The Universitat de Barcelona and Macmillan are proud to present the new Expert in CLIL course. Acquiring CLIL skills is essential in plurilingual teaching contexts to be able to teach curricular subjects effectively, and to develop professionally.

This highly practical qualification capacitates participants to work towards achieving a holistic curriculum through English. The course will focus on integrating content learning from different areas of the curriculum, such us natural science, social science, arts and crafts, music, performing arts, physical education or maths. Furthermore, participants will learn how to plan successful CLIL classes to help students maximize their learning potential.

Expert in CLIL will begin 1 October 2014 and will be composed of three parts, each of which is available as a separate post-graduate course as well as within a combined package. It is equivalent to three postgraduate university courses of 6 credits (ECTS) each. Both the three-part Expert course and the three individual courses will run between 2014 and 2016. You can find more information here.
