CALL FOR POSTERS
There are two ways to participate in the seminar, either as an attendee or an attendee with poster presentation. The certificate given at the end will specify the type of participation chosen.
The aim of the seminar is to provide a forum for establishing a dialogue between different theoretical proposals and the practical reality of ‘doing’ CLIL. With this in mind, proposals are invited for posters which may come under one of the following categories (or any other topic related to the research or implementation and practice of CLIL in the classroom):
- CLIL methodology in the classroom
- Assessment: innovative proposals/new initiatives
- Adapting the curriculum for CLIL teaching
- Materials development
- Using ICT in CLIL
- Learner differences in multicultural contexts: multiple intelligences
- CLIL Teaching using any other languages
- Other topics related to CLIL research or classroom experiences
Poster proposals will be reviewed by the scientific committee and a prize will be awarded to the best poster in each category. In addition, the four posters judged to be the best will be included in the seminar publication.
The poster proposals will be submitted in the form of an abstract (minimum 300 words, maximum 400, without bibliography) in which the author(s) will describe the study or experience to be displayed on the poster. The abstract should contain the following information: title of the poster; author(s) and affiliation; a short introduction; objectives; methodology (including participants, materials, etc.); description of the experience or results of the study.
The official languages of the seminar are Valencian, Spanish and English. Contributions in any of these languages, French or German will be considered.
Proposals should be sent to CLILmultilingual@upv.es specifying the topic under which it is to be categorized.
Once author(s) have been notified of acceptance of their proposals, they should follow the instructions below with regard to the format and design of the posters.
Posters will be DIN A0 and have a vertical orientation, and the following details should be included:
- Short title
- Name(s) and affiliation
- General and specific objectives
- Description of experience or research study
- Results or expected results and/or applications
The following points are also recommended when designing posters:
- Do not include too much information
- Use graphs, figures, photos, etc.
- Use a relatively large font
- Use colours to distinguish the different parts or sections and to highlight most relevant aspects of the study or experience.
The author(s) will bring the poster on the day of the seminar with the exact format and specifications as required (A0 vertical).
A collection of papers from the seminar, including the four posters chosen, and some invited contributions will be published by UPV publications with ISBN and DOI
In addition, the publication will be distributed through the institutional repository RIUNET, the UPV bookshop and library and UPV congresses web site (OCS).
