CLIL stands for Content and Language Integrated Learning and, as the name suggests, this approach to bilingual education, in which academic subjects are taught in the target language, relies on collaboration between teachers, administrators, students, and parents. Growing in popularity around the globe, the rise of CLIL calls for a deeper understanding of the underpinnings and applications of this method, as well as the potential benefits the approach has for students.

Join Bridge, along with CLIL experts and practitioners, to discuss CLIL’s place in bilingual education, the key principles of this method (including the 5 C’s), and how stakeholders can support CLIL adoption at their institution to improve student outcomes.
