Content Teachers’ Perspectives from a CLIL Methodology Training Course

Laura Tommaso    Università degli Studi del Molise, Italia    



The purpose of this study is to explore upper secondary teachers’ perceptions, attitudes, and needs regarding a CLIL methodology teacher training course offered by the Language Centre of the University of Molise in the year 2017-2018. To this end, multiple sources of evidence were gathered from e-questionnaires and observations. The findings point to the need to strengthen training in the areas of micro-teaching and teaching practice and to the importance of practice observation, especially from more experienced CLIL teachers. In this respect, the study suggests to consider a more extensive usage of on-line teaching environments where additional support and valuable resources can be provided throughout the course.
