This course was designed for teachers who want to renew and expand their English skills, introduce the CLIL method in their classes, understand the principles and applications of this method, and find resources and learning materials. Three chemistry teachers from our school attended the course in three different dates.
During workshops and lectures, participants learned about how theories can relate to their own classroom practice. The course also included the means of planning education with CLIL and developing teaching materials.
The main benefit of the course for participants was to be more confident in speaking and writing in English and understanding the key principles of planning teaching CLIL, materials creation, and integration of teaching content and language.

This event could have been done thanks to saving our budget. The partner school Abidin Pak Pakmaya Anadolu Lisesi has a very good international cooperation team, which currently implements five projects with foreign partners. Therefore, the job shadowing was focused on the concept of managing and coordinating international projects, team leadership and teachers cooperation, and collaboration with foreign partners. The particiant had the opportunity to discuss with the school management and the teachers involved in the projects, she also attended the lessons. Another topic of discussion was the education system in Turkey and its changes and new teaching methods using ICT and digital technology. Throughout her stay, she was lead by the project coordinator, who has many years of experience in project management and team leadership and who also ensured the cultural part of the stay with a visit to interesting places around and ancient monuments.
