TCA Description

Themes and goals:
Languages are very important in citizens’ life: they are a key to communication and social inclusion. They are very closely linked to the development of intercultural competences, critical thinking, social and civic engagement. They enhance cross-border mobility and cooperation and thus raise awareness on and understanding of the common European values. This contact seminar wants to contribute to the challenge of the EU-wide agreed goal that every European should be able to learn two foreign languages (from an early age). How can adult learners be stimulated to improve their literacy and/or learn multiple languages? How can the teaching of languages be improved – especially in multilingual classrooms/settings? Language learning happens in formal and non formal activities; how can we reach a comprehensive approach to language teaching and learning in adult education? Do CLIL, translanguaging, storytelling, gamification, escaperooms, specific online tools… contribute to effective language teaching and learning in adult education? What innovative methods do you want to share with language teachers from abroad?
Expected results:
  • To raise the number of high quality cooperation projects sharing best practices, discussing ideas for new projects, preparing drafts of applications for the successor of the Erasmus+ programme in the domain of Adult Education about the theme of the contact seminar.
  • To develop Learning Mobility activities for staff in Adult Education in which language teachers are stimulated to learn innovative strategies and methodologies in the field of language learning and teaching via jobshadowing / study visits… 
Additional information:

The programme starts on Monday 28th September (7 pm) and ends on Thursday 1st October (1.30 pm) 2020. The programme will consist of various items like ice-breakers, some formal presentations, workshops, interactive sessions… and informal parts for optimal exchange of information and experiences.

Before the conference participants will receive material on the theme and the profiles of the participating organisations via a closed community in EPALE. Participants are also requested to bring some information on their region organisation and information on their national adult education system.
