Supported by The European Union ERASMUS PLUS PROGRAMME and a special welcome to Queen’s University OPEN LEARNING Tutors

  • September 16th to 20nd BELFAST
  • Playing beyond CLIL is an Erasmus Plus KA2 project
  • Location: 20 College Green/0G/005
  • Queen’s University Belfast

How to Show What You Know is an intensive one-week course offering a European training experience in teaching and learning through drama.

The course presents theory and practice from Playing beyond CLIL, an Erasmus Plus KA2 Project with participants from Berlin, Helsinki, Canary Islands and Belfast.

Show What You Know (SWYK) events are designed to offer students alternative ways of demonstrating their understanding of subjects, giving teachers an entertaining opportunity to assess.

During the course between 6 – 8 SWYK events are introduced, modelled and practised.

Each SWTK is accompanied with guidance and activities on how to prepare students and connect relevant subject content.

Participants will learn:

  • Theories and principles for developing practice-based, approaches to dynamic formative assessment: SWYK
  • Embedding in subject disciplines
  • Promote languaging
  • Promote thinking skills
  • Promote personal growth

Promote focus tasks – Positioning, Stimulus, Scaffolding, Cognitive apprenticeship

  • How to use drama techniques to enhance the listening, fluency and confidence of their students
  • How to design and present SWYK events relevant to subjects taught.
  • How to assess learning taking place in processes and production of SWYK

Many of the ideas underpinning the course are developed in contexts of bilingual learning (CLIL, content language integrated learning) but the benefits of the training are relevant across the curriculum.

Practical and interactive demonstrations are matched with presentations on theory and principles.

Participants are invited to join the projects’ research community and given tools for data collection.
