TACE – Teaching Academic Content through English

Programme for staff development in intercultural university pedagogy and English

The overall aim of the annual TACE programme is to develop intercultural communication and university pedagogical competence for using English in multimodal teaching, learning, counselling, and assessment situations in the participants’ own fields and practices.

The programme itself follows a CLIL ( Content and Language Integrated Learning) approach of addressing issues specific to both the language and the teaching of the discipline. Interactive contact modules and tasks develop one’s understanding of, and skills for, promoting the learning of multilingual and multicultural student groups.

The learning platform allows versatile use of media to support and document the building of personal portfolios.

The programme includes eight flexible modules, in total 15 credits. Contact sessions include an intensive-day in August and December, two morning sessions per month, and individual observations and consultations.
