Coordinating a Languages Department, including Extending Language Learning beyond the classroom walls
Are you the new Languages Coordinator or have you been in this leadership role for ages? This webinar highlights the key facets of the role – from administrative and staffing aspects to advocacy and promotion of languages within the school community.
Leadership in languages usually includes encouraging and helping colleagues explore opportunities for students to further their language learning experiences by immersing themselves in the language and its culture in meaningful contexts outside the classroom. Evidence shows that student participation in well executed excursions, tours and exchanges, as well as interschool language camps and seminars in their senior school years, can accelerate their progress significantly. Part of this webinar focuses on planning such ventures. An experienced Languages Coordinator in several schools who has organised numerous tours, exchanges and camps, Ian will guide participants through various models, their organisational logistics and pathways to successful programs.
