Keith Kelly - Ingredients for successful CLIL

Recorded in March 2014, this webinar by Keith Kelly looks at the successful implementation of CLIL.

About the webinar

In recent years, it’s been quite common to find governments with motivation for CLIL. It’s less common to find motivated governments who think seriously in the longer term about CLIL implementation and all it entails, (though there are some significant exceptions). Successful CLIL depends on a variety of factors. This webinar discusses four of these factors relevant to successful implementation of CLIL.

Firstly, we look at questions of managing and supporting the CLIL implementation process. Secondly, we look at the roles and behaviours of teachers in the delivery of CLIL. Thirdly, we examine the issue of resourcing CLIL in schools. Lastly, but by no means least importantly, we consider factors to do with the learners in CLIL education. Along the way, we will consider examples of CLIL in action in a number of contexts.

Ok, but when I go to the link, it says: "Guests are not admitted into this meeting. Enter with your login and password". And I haven't got any login and password in Adobeconnect as I never use it... So, I don't know. Thanks again. Judit

At 10.00 GMT I'll be in my classroom, so I'll not be able to look at this webinar. Could you prepare a registration for the teachers engaged in lessons in the classroom? Thanks Mario Pilosu - Genoa

Dear Pilosu There is no registration necessary for the webinars. I'm afraid we are not able to prepare a special registration for teachers in class. All the webinars are recorded and available for you to watch the day after the live webinar Best wishes Paul

Dear Mario I think you mean 'recording' rather than 'registration' - that's a 'false friend' in Italian - 'registrazione' in Italian is 'recording' in English. As Paul says, there are recordings available. Hope that helps Chris
