The Centre for Applied Language Studies is pleased to invite you to the
following guest lecture:
Title: 'Language using as language learning: approaching
research debates on the language classroom'
Speaker: Professor Do Coyle (Chair of Learning Innovation,
University of Aberdeen)
Time/Date: 4.30pm on Tuesday, 23 February 2010
Do Coyle has held the Chair of Learning Innovation at the University of
Aberdeen since 2008. Prior to that, she worked at the University of
Nottingham, where she was Associate Professor of Education, Co-Director
of the University's CETL-Visual Learning Lab and member of the Learning
Sciences Research Institute. Professor Coyle is an international expert
in CLIL (content- and language-integrated learning) and has played a
major role in the European movement associated with bilingual and modern
languages education. Working towards the 'borderless classroom', she has
created innovative approaches to video conferencing using the Teaching
and Learning Observatory concept. She is a member of the international
research group on learning strategies (IPOLLS), the European research
group for CLIL (CLILCOM) and is guest editor of the International
Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism.
Her talk will focus on research and practice relating to teaching
languages through the target language. This talk should be of particular
interest to those of you researching in language pedagogy and classroom
discourse, but also to anyone who is interested in finding out why
teaching through the target language helps learners make better
progress. All welcome!
