Many studies suggest that the capacity of today’s complex and fragmented education systems to learn and share knowledge is an important enabler for the spreading and sustaining of innovations in teaching and learning. Working in connection with diverse networks of schools and professional learning communities can help to build innovative learning environments and teaching practices. This is also true for language education. School networks and partnerships can promote collaboration in the development of plurilingual pedagogies, while also encouraging knowledge exchanges and networking among teachers and other educational stakeholders.
How such cross-border networks and partnerships foster plurilingualism and systematically promote an inclusive, multilingual ethos across systems will be explored in this webinar. We will talk about two inspirational examples of school networks and labels – CertiLingua and Language Friendly School, as well as reflect on innovative language learning methods (such as AIM), which can be promoted through such networks.
Webinar panelists: Gisella Langé (CertiLingua Network), Ellen-Rose Kambel (Rutu Foundation), Audrey Rousse Malpat (University of Groningen). Discussant: Jim Cummins (University of Toronto). Moderator: Kristina Cunningham (European Commission, DG EAC, Schools and Multilingualism unit).
