Conferences and symposiums Addressing Language and Culture in Healthcare Education
There is a need to equip educators teaching medical and healthcare sciences in English with continuous learning skills allowing them to work effectively in today’s multicultural and multilingual classrooms. This session will discuss the findings from the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project "CLIL for medical education (CLILMED): Reaching for Tools to Teach Effectively in English in a Multicultural and Multilingual Learning Space".
Context: Continuous learning for Healthcare professionals/Faculty.
The eight project partners - spanning Hungary, Poland, Ireland and KI - investigated research-based practices which can assist higher education institutions in supporting their teachers to enhance the quality of international education.
The project aims to increase the capacity of medical educators teaching in English in the field of medical and healthcare sciences by encouraging them to concurrently teach their subject and increase the linguistic and cultural competences of students, through a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach.
Two participating educators from KI will present examples of how they integrated the CLIL approach in their teaching and share their good practices with you. Join us for an interactive session where you will be invited to reflect on language and culture in healthcare education. You will also find tools on our website.
