Ecolint Symposiums take place throughout the year. They begin with a presentation by the speaker of the day and are followed by an apéritif. The sociable moment we spend together discussing pedagogy is as important as the talk itself and contributes to Ecolint’s tradition of open exchange and spirit of lifelong learning.

Research on Pluriliteracy
We expect our students to understand and to communicate in our specific subject with a specialist language suited to the subject and the task. However, how often do we make this specialist language explicit to our students? Do we use suitable strategies to ensure this "literacy" is made accessible? Are there bridges between subjects? What happens when the subject is taught in L2 and do we take into account the various cultural approaches of our very diverse school population?
These are some of the questions Dunja Chamberlain and Frederic Taveau have been asking themselves and will continue to explore with you in a symposium that promises to be exciting!
