PBL & CLIL in Bilingual Education

About the course:

In this on-line, 20-hour course, participants will reflect about the importance of acquiring languages through meaningful, context relevant communication.

We will reflect on questions such as:

  • What is CLIL?  Is CLIL a philosophy, a methodology or an approach? Why the noise
  • What exactly is PBL? What are its characteristics?
  • Why is PBL  appropriate for Bilingual Education? How does it connect with the CLIL approach?
  • How can this be implemented in my class? Is it applicable in any content area?
  • How can students learn through Inquiry? Why is this beneficial?
  • How do I get my students to interact through a second language?
  • How can we make sure that PBL does not compromise a curriculum nor compromise learning expectations?
  • What tools and strategies can I use to implement PBL in my classes?
  • How can we differentiate teaching in PBL?
  • When, at what stage of the process and how?
  • How can I organize my planning in a PBL model?  What would it look like?
  • How do I assess students in a PBL-based program?


Participants are expected to dedicate  4 hours per week and take part in the activities with comments. There will be one assessed task at the end of the course.

Resources will include:
 Texts for reading and reflecting with peers; 
Forum discussions
; Videos ; Material analysis; 
Collaborative planning.
