‘Ways of seeing’: positioning CLIL in pluriliteracies spaces

As shifts, turns and uncertainties dominate our world, the dynamic of our pedagogic contexts have become a start reality. In this session I shall return to a seemingly simple yet disruptive question: what do we/I/you/they mean by integrated learning?  Acknowledging that CLIL happens in a myriad of contexts, I shall explore ways in which pluriliteracies spaces open ways of combining pedagogies to guide learners towards textual fluency across languages leading to making ‘successful’ integrated learning – CLIL – accessible for all.

Extensive research on immersion/bilingual programs in North America and around the world has demonstrated that these forms of dual language education can be, and often are, effective at promoting advanced levels of second language proficiency without jeopardizing students’ first language or academic development. The vast majority of this research has been carried out with typically-developing students from majority language and cultural groups. This limitation in current research raises important ethical, professional and practical issues. This presentation will discuss findings from research on students with learning challenges, including language and reading disabilities and special education needs, in dual language programs.

In spite of decades of research on CLIL, there are still many challenges and pending issues that need to be addressed. One of these challenges is the organisation of multidisciplinary teams with content and language teachers and researchers working collaboratively on content and language integrated teaching and assessment. This session will offer insights from research within the UAM CLIL research group (http://www.uam-clil.org) on content and language integration in students’ production and classroom practices as well as the results from seminars with content and language teachers sharing their work on content and language integrated learning and assessment from the perspective of their own discipline. In this talk I will advocate for the role of CLIL in enhancing multidisciplinary work and research, which this pandemic has shown as the only way to address societal challenges successfully in the present and in the near future.

Over the past decades, CLIL has been adopted by most European countries partly to provide an answer to the European Union’s need for multilingualism and internationalisation. This session analyses the relationship between language policy and practice, which requires revisiting some of the issues that affect CLIL implementation and research both in Europe and in other international contexts. The effect of language policy on the implementation of CLIL calls not only for new measures to increase the level of foreign language competence but also for a different perspective in the teaching of non-linguistic subjects.
