Academic teaching in English workshop

This workshop is for academic teaching staff seeking to deliver programs in English.  It will provide you with the opportunity to talk to an experienced CLIL teacher trainer and experience what the CLIL course may include.

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)  is an internationally recognised approach for educators who teach, or want to teach, curriculum using English as the medium of instruction for students from a non-English speaking background.  Our CLIL training is becoming the program of choice for universities who want to increase the number, expand the range, and enhance the quality of courses delivered in English. 

For more information, watch the CLIL video here, or download the information flyer in English or Japanese.
