Dear colleague! 

You are cordially invited to participate in an online seminar “Assessment and learning in CLIL: Where are we now and where are we going?” on March 8, 2021, starting at 11.30 GMT+2 (Eastern European Time). The duration of the seminar will be 3.5 hours. 

The seminar is devoted to classroom assessment promoting learning in CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning). Our goal is to bring together CLIL teachers, educators, and researchers to discuss and share their expertise, practices, and vision in teaching, learning, and assessment in CLIL classrooms. The seminar is connected to a recently published edited volume “Assessment and Learning in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) Classrooms” which was a result of collaboration between CLIL researchers, educators, teachers, and assessment experts from around the world. 

We aim at expanding on the topics of teaching, learning, and assessment in CLIL, building on expertise of all of the participants to inspire further development of our understanding of teaching, learning, and assessment relationships in CLIL classrooms and at starting new productive collaborations.
