Enhancing language education in cross-border vocational education

The promotion of language learning plays a particularly important role in border regions, especially in professional and vocational education. The project will focus on innovative processes which facilitate the crossing of linguistic and cultural borders as well as on the development of CLIL methodology in professional settings, connecting research to real needs on the ground.

The survey is directed to teachers, teacher educators, students, researchers and agents in professional and vocational formation who live and/or work in a border region.

The promotion of language learning plays a specifically important role, especially in cross-border vocational education and training. So far, language learning only plays a marginal role in vocational education and training as the focus is often put on the training subjects. In border regions, in which different languages and cultures come into close contact, language learning and teaching are of special importance and can be seen as decisive factor for a successful cross-border labor market. 

However, practice and research show that specific concepts for language learning and teaching in vocational education contexts in border regions are still lacking. The project activities, pooling expertise from different border regions, attempt to close this gap (regardless of the current pandemic situation).

The aim of this survey is to help prepare a manual for teacher educators, teachers and their students including guidelines, training modules and a teacher portfolio.We are interested in your experiences and needs regarding the following issues:

  1. language(s) and culture(s), especially in border regions 
  2. language learning and teaching, especially in border regions
  3. cross-border teacher education programmes 
  4. the planned manual

The survey should take about 20 minutes. 

The questionnaire will be open until: 31 December 2021
