Interactive Maps of Language Communities and Skills

Open Textbook on Task-Based Language Teaching

Based on focus groups with real language teachers on the TBLT methodology, a theoretical and practical textbook has been developed. It includes the theoretical background of the TBLT methodology, practical exercises, tools, and guidelines for language teachers who want to implement the TBLT methodology. Furthermore, you will find a broad range of example activities that you can use as a template for your own language teaching. Therefore, there are 3 versions, one complete one with the theory and the example activities, one with only the theory, and one with only the activities. In this way, you can download exactly what serves you.

Hand-out for cultural and language exchanges

To increase the impact of the methodology and the competences learned in the MOOC, language cafes were organized in which newly formed migrant language teachers can practice their teaching with local adults, while at the same time learning the local language as tandem language exchange go both ways. To give extra attention to the intercultural aspect of those encounters, special guidelines are developed on how to organize these events while promoting language and cultural exchange.

Framework on Skills Screening, Monitoring and Validation

The validation of skills acquired through non-formal learning methodologies represents a key step of the upskilling pathway, especially for individuals who do not have the possibility to be involved in formal learning paths. In an effort to respond to this need, TANDEM developed a framework supporting skill screening, assessment and validation in non-formal language teaching, including learning objectives, assessment methods, evaluation rubrics, a badge system and a certificate.
