Plurilingualism in Language Education Professional Development Series

Explore the Series ↓


This workshop series introduces language teachers to the notion of plurilingualism as a theoretical and practitioner-driven approach to support learners from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The workshops bridge the latest in language theory and research with practical application through  the design of pedagogical strategies that can be implemented into daily teaching practices. Language teachers, teachers of linguistically diverse students, and aspiring educators are encouraged to participate in this interactive online program.

The Professional Development Series includes 10 workshops. With the exception of one mandatory workshop, Workshop 1 which provides the theoretical foundation for plurilingualism in language teaching, participation in the remaining workshops is flexible giving you the opportunity to enroll in as many workshops as you want. Workshops are live, highly interactive, and delivered synchronously on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm on scheduled dates. Workshops can be taken individually or combined in bundles of 3, 6 or 10 depending on your professional interests.

You will receive a certificate of professional development from PDI and the Faculty upon completing each workshop.
