I CAME, I SHARED, I TOOK IT HOME – THE NEW TEACHER PROFILE COURSE

As part of the CITA project the 30-hour New Teacher Profile Course was held in Budapest from the 27-29 October with the aim of providing professional development for experienced English teachers. The objective of the Teacher Profile Course was to support teachers in rising to the challenges of the 21st century teacher, with particular attention to such evergreen topics as Continuous Professional Development, Special Needs Education (dyslexia, gifted children) Integration of ICT and Gamification and Content and Language Integrated Learning. Since all the 30 participants from the three countries were highly motivated teachers with considerable experience, the course was designed to have only a relatively small percentage of clearcut input sessions (5 hours) – the focus was more on sharing best practices in these areas in an international context. Here is a collection of the
hands-on ideas the participants enjoyed the most……so much so that they took them home and tested them with great results!

CLIL-ING IN VILNIUS

Publication of IATEFL-Hungary

Co-operation in Teaching Associations (CITA) organised a 4-day workshop on CLIL teaching in the Lithuania University of Educational Sciences in Vilnius on June 29 to July 3, 2015. Lithuania (LAKMA) was organising and leading the course, but members of the other two associations, APABAL from Mallorca and IATEFL-Hungary, were also involved in the teaching of the course. The course was designed to give members of our associations – 10 CLIL teachers from all levels of education selected from each country – an overview of up-to-date CLIL methodology with an emphasis on practical techniques delivered by experts in the field. Another important aim was for the participants to learn from each other by working together, and the outcome of the course was a CLIL lesson created and given by groups made up of teachers from each country while the other teachers became the ‘pupils’ for each lesson. The lessons were extremely enjoyable and the whole course was a huge success both socially and professionally, a fact reflected in the very positive feedback given by the participants. Below you can read some of the feedback given by the 10 Hungarian participants after the course.
