THE LISTIAC PROJECT


Listiac blog relay race

To celebrate the Erasmus Days (October 15-17), the Listiac project is hosting a blog relay race: one partner at a time will share their experiences of working towards linguistically sensitive teacher education in Europe. The journey starts in Vaasa, Finland and moves south all the way to Algarve, Portugal before it ends in Jyväskylä, Finland. A new blog post will be published every Thursday starting 15 October 2020. You are welcome to join Listiac on its trip around Europe! Click the map to see all the published posts in the series.

About Listiac

The Listiac Project develops and experiments a theoretically informed reflection tool aimed at making (future) teachers more linguistically sensitive in their beliefs, attitudes and actions.

All students in the EU need teachers who are linguistically sensitive and responsive.

The Listiac project (Linguistically Sensitive Teaching in All Classrooms) intends to realise the desired change in teacher cognition, the education and professional development of teachers.
