Methods is a Leonardo supported ToI (Transfer of Innovation) project based on the BP-BLTM project, which delivered manuals with descriptions of five communicative language teaching methods complete with teaching materials ready to use in classes. The manuals Methods complemented with videos demonstrating the five methods. It is the aims of Methods to adapt and transfer the materials for use in France (Guadeloupe), Malta, and Slovenia as well as to develop materials for teaching these languages. But it is also our objective to cluster with other language projects.
BP-BLTM selected five communicative language teaching methods suitable for VET teachers and their students, especially those preparing for or in the midst of work placement in other countries. For each method the project developed sets of materials and instructions for exemplary lessons.
To help the training of the less experienced teachers the use of the methods and materials are demonstrated through instructional video recordings of exemplary lessons.
The BP-BLTM main outputs to be translated, adapted and transferred are:
• -A video library with subtitled commented recordings of the five methods used in real classes.
• -Five manuals presenting the 5 methods, instructions and ready to copy and use materials
• -An International Work Placement Guide
• -A website.
This project will transfer the BP-BLTM results to France (Guadeloupe), Malta and Slovenia by adapting and translating the guide, the methods manuals, the ready to use in classes materials and the subtitles for the project videos and run a large number of teacher courses.
The project consortium comprises VET colleges from FR, MT, and SI involved in language teaching and work placement. The DK partner was the coordinator of the BP-BLTM project. Dissemination is planned with European Federation EfVET partner (reaching VET teachers and policy makers), participation in VET and language teacher conferences, through quarterly newsletters, and the project website languages.dk/methods (in 2012 100,000+ unique visitors).
EfVET has been chosen as dissemination partner with access to thousands of Vocational Colleges across Europe.
