Project structure

PROJECT STRUCTURE

  • National Project Team (NPT)

    • core NPT(Katja Pavlič Škerjanc, project manager – NEI, Maja Celestina, NEI; Barbara Gregorič – financial matters, NEI; Domen Petelin – legal matters, NEI; Bronka Straus, MES)

    • extended NPT(core NPT + NEI foreign language advisers)

    • enlarged NPT(extended NPT + school project team leaders + school FL coordinators + selected foreign teachers/one per language)

  • School Project Teams (SPT) (3 – 5 members)

    • Project team leader

    • Foreign language coordinator

    • Foreign teacher

    • Other teachers according to the school project goals


Foreign teachers aims and goals of the project

“FOREIGN TEACHERS”Aimsandgoalsoftheproject

  • upgrading the quality of foreign language teaching in Slovenia by innovative approaches, based on

    • an enhanced authenticity of learning situations (communication with a native speaker of the target language or a non-native speaker with a FL1 otherthan Slovene and using the target language as a lingua franca)

      and

    • cooperative teaching in multicultural teams (Slovene & foreign teachers of foreign languages, Slovene teachers of non-language subjects & foreign teachers of foreign languages);

  • developinga systemic approach to foreign teachers inclusion into the Slovene educational system - piloting alternative organizational options


Added value

ADDED VALUE?

  • Bringing together native and non-native (Slovene) teachers of target languages ( combining the advantages and disadvantages of the emic and the etic perspective into a complementary blend of both, with the native teacher contributing “the insider’s understanding and fluency” and the Slovene teacher sharing the cognitive structure with the students …)

  • Bringing together non-native teachers of target languages from different cultural backgrounds ( developing cultural multiperspectivism, intercultural sensitivity, intercultural awareness, intercultural competence of both teachers and students)

Collaborative -team teaching in multicultural -intercultural teams


Foreign teacher role and tasks

FOREIGN TEACHER: ROLE AND TASKS

  • The foreign teacher is an autonomous, independent expert, expected to contribute creatively and innovatively to the quality of foreign language teaching and the school development project.

  • He/She is non only an ambassador of the culture he/she comes from but also an active promoter of multiculturality and interculturality.

  • He/She (co)-teaches in all parts of the curriculum:

    • core and elective (80% of the direct instruction/teaching workload),

    • optional (up to 10 % of the teaching workload) and

    • extra-curricular activities (up to 10 % of the teaching workload).

      Like Slovene teachers, foreign teachers will be required to be available for work at all times when the school is open and at other such times as the principal/headteacher or governing body may reasonably direct.


Foreign teachers

“FOREIGN” TEACHERS?

  • Native speaker vs.TEACHER ?

    • foreign language teacher OR

    • subject teacher with a FL teaching certificate?

  • Monocultural vs.intercultural teacher?

  • Target language =

    • first (mother) tongue?

    • second language (bilingual – bicultural speakers)?

    • foreign language (but with a first/second language and culture other than Slovene)?

    Added value3

    ADDED VALUE?

    • Schools had to apply with a research project proposal (investigating a research question relevant for the national project)

    • Reflective practice, schools as learning communities ( looking for the answer to the research questiion by investigating their own practice)

    Project approach to innovation – action research

    (professional development)

    • Witha development (ie. research) project, a school

    • introduceschange(s)

    • intotheusual(ie. everyday, established) teachingandlearningprocess(es)

    • in a plannedandsystematicway

    • to raise - directly or indirectly - thequalityofstudentlearningandoutcomes.

      • experience with research projects;

      • experience in the following areas:

        • team teaching,

        • employment of foreign teachers,

        • school improvement/development/research work;
