Language across Curriculum

Date: Nov 6-10, 2017

Last Date of registration: Oct 20, 2017

In order to enhance the capacity of practicing professionals working in the field of Education and Development, the School of Continuing Education and University Resource Centre of Azim Premji University, Bangalore has designed and conducted a number of capacity enhancement programmes till date and the present course entitled Language across Curriculum is the latest addition to our list of in service programmes specifically meant for the Faculty and teacher educators of State Councils of Educational Research and Training (SCERTs), Institutes of Advanced Studies in Education (IASEs) Colleges of Teacher Education(CTEs), District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) and the Resource Persons of non-Government organizations (NGOs) working in the field of Education.

As all school subjects are learnt through language, teachers as well as teacher educators need to develop a critical understanding of the nature and role of language in the context of the child and the curriculum and this assumption has prompted us to design this 5 day Certificate course from 6 November to 10 November 2017.

It is pertinent to note that the course documents for the Bachelor of Education and the Diploma in Teacher Education programmes published by the National Council for Teacher Education also highlighted the importance of a Language across Curriculum perspective in teacher education. The language papers of these programmes are based on the assumption that language is a tool to understand concepts in different content areas such as Social Sciences, Sciences or Mathematics and in view of the thrust given to the Language across Curriculum perspective in the policy documents, this 5 day course will enable the participants to develop perspectives on language and to understand and experience the centrality of language by relating it to the overall objectives of the curriculum.
