30 August – 1 September 2019

We are pleased to announce that the Language Centre at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) will host its first CLIL Conference in August 2019. Over the past 5 years the Language Centre has developed an integrated approach to deliver content-based modules in collaboration with multiple departments in the University. XJTLU, with an international student body of over 10,000, is one of the only English medium universities in China to implement a CLIL approach. This conference will provide an opportunity for us to not only share our pedagogical practices and scholarship but also allow for exchange of ideas and approaches with researchers and practitioners from within China and around the world.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. David Marsh (Ph.D., Hon.D.) an internationally renowned expert on educational innovation, strategy and practice who now works on developing, piloting, and analysing the implementation of CLIL models globally will present on the topic of Shaping the Future: Enabling Successful CLIL within the University Ecosystem.
