It is intended to boost innovative practices for teacher professional development programmes in Europe from a plurilingual perspective.

The TEMPLATE international team will be holding a new meeting on Friday, July the 16th at 12.00 pm. This session is aimed at dealing with the results and insights regarding the FOCUS GROUP meetings, both national and international, recently held.
The main target group of the project are teachers involved in FL teaching, CLIL activities and project-based learning. They will be involved in a training that integrates the pedagogical aspects with the content knowledge and the digital tools (TPACK model) that might be effectively applied in class in an innovative framework that will set the bar high in terms of innovative practices and teacher training programmes across Europe.
The findings of related SLA research will be made accessible to teachers by means of publications, conferences and thesis in order to promote researcher-teacher collaboration and teacher-research, and with the aim of involving teacher educators in the research on the current plurilingual teaching practice.
Open educational resources will be freely available on the project website so that teachers, teacher trainers and researchers all over the world will be able to benefit from modules inspired in the project results, and designed to develop the implementation of plurilingual foreign language education.
