sael  The SAEL Seminar, a European Seminar on Language Teacher Support Websites
5- 6 november 2009, Sèvres (France)

The seminar will close the two-year Comenius SAEL (Sites d'accompagnement à destination des enseignants de langues/language teacher support websites), project involving three partners: the CIEP (France), the project coordinator, the ANIF (Italie) and Europees Platform (Pays-Bas).

It will take place on 5 and 6 November 2009. All participants will receive a copy of the SAEL guide, containing concrete proposals for creating and updating websites designed to support language teachers in their work.

sael  Programme

The SAEL Seminar is aimed at decision-makers from associations and institutions involved in training language teachers and interested in creating or improving support websites for language teachers. It will be a unique opportunity to exchange examples of good practice with decision-makers from all over Europe, as well as with the teams behind the teaching content for the websites Emilangues, eTwinning, Franc-Parler.org, Primary Languages and PrimLangues.

The seminar will include workshops in which participants can share their experiences (in French and in English) of creating websites, of choosing and designing resources, and on the role played by websites in forming networks of teachers to promote exchanges and mobility. Technical questions will be dealt with in a conference giving an overview of  open source resources and on the renovation of websites in the age of Web 2.0.

More information is available on the website eurosael.eu.
