The Clilstore Practitioner Guidebook comprises an introductory guide to using clilstore.eu in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) contexts and provides technical guidance for CLIL practitioners at all educational levels. It has been funded with support from the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme through the Spanish National Agency as an output of the CLIL Open Online Learning (COOL) project, carried out from September 2018 to December 2021, coordinated by Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain (reference number KA2-2018-1-ES01-KA203-050474).
We are greatly indebted to all the colleagues who have participated in the project and contributed to the success of the COOL project and its main outcome, the clilstore.eu CLIL authoring tool, materials reposi- tory, and multilingual dictionary interface. The Guidebook is available in English, Danish, Irish, Italian, and Spanish all versions in .pdf format and as .ePub
Core: 4 Weeks (Modules 1-7, including Assessment and Certification)
Optional: 2 Weeks (Modules 8-10)
The COOL CLIL course serves as a general introduction to Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) while also delivering training in how to create digital materials to support learners and plan lessons using CLIL methodology. Modules 1-6 are core learning modules which cover CLIL theory, lessson planning and technical training in how to use the Open Educational Resource - Clilstore.eu which caters directly to both learners and teachers. Module 7 is a summative assessment module which if successfully completed leads to the award of a Certificate. Modules 8-9 will allow course participants to learn about a series of EU funded projects that have helped to advance the dissemination and uptake of the CLIL methodology within Europe and beyond and also find out how they can participate in a growing community of practice centred around these projects and Clilstore.eu. Finally, Module 10 provides access to case-studies and academic discussions on CLIL to enable participants to explore the theory and its application in more depth and deepen their knowledge of the field. This may help participants plan for the adoption of CLIL at a wider curricular or institutional level or design projects to research and assess the efficacy of CLIL.
