Council of Europe Webinar: Action-oriented plurilingual mediation in collaborative tasks

During 2021 there will be eight webinars/online workshops. These will take place in the first week of the month, normally on the first Thursday, in the months of February, March, May, June, September, October, November and December. This webinar series is a follow up to the videoconference entitled “The CEFR Companion Volume: A Key Resource for Inclusive Plurilingual Education” held on 16 December 2020. The webinars are intended to help language professionals familiarize themselves with the  concepts elaborated in the Companion Volume and consider ways in which they may be integrated into teaching and learning practices. Some of the webinars will be presentations, whilst others will be workshops.

The first webinar entitled “Action-oriented plurilingual mediation in collaborative tasks” will take place on 10 February 2021 from 16.00 until 18.30 CET. It will be moderated by Brian North. This webinar will remind participants of the implications for classroom practice  of the concept of mediation, as outlined in the CEFR Companion Volume, before presenting for discussion examples of action-oriented tasks in which learners mediate texts and concepts, using different languages. It will be organised in a workshop form where participants will be presented to the concept and then work on “individual crosslinguistic activities” in sub-groups.

Participants will be provided with a Certificate of Attendance after the webinar
