Course Overview

creative teaching, sustainable learning

In this introductory course to sustainable foreign language teaching and learning, participants are invited to join a learning community of foreign language teachers who are interested in creative ways of language teaching and learning. We understand learning as a relational and multidimensional process. Hence we will look at the subject, the teacher and the child.

In videos, texts and tasks we will look at child development with special focus on natural language acquisition as well as basic thoughts about language learning in school. It is the aim of our courses to foster an understanding of the underlying processes of language acquisition and learning. Moreover we will introduce you to a variety of methods that can help children and teenagers to learn new languages in school according to their own capabilities, motivated by joy and interest. With a holistic (Waldorf) perspective on the human being we work with inspiration and imagination towards creative ways of teaching and learning languages in a globalized world.

With the help of the basic tools of action research and collegial conversations participating teachers will be enabled to not only discover the world of FLL through theoretical texts and examples of good practice, but also to learn from their own teaching as well as from and with each other.

In this first part of the course you will also be introduced to the usage of the tools of online learning which we use in our courses.

This self-paced course is meant as preparation for the course ‘Sustainable language teaching and learning part 2’, which will start again in September 2018.

The whole course (part 1 and 2) offers material for six to eight weeks plus some additional time for finishing the tasks and assignments.
