Adult education and language teaching, Krajské centrum vzděláváni a Jazyková škola Plzeň (Regional Centre of Education and Language School Pilsen)
“Career learning through tandem mobility” + Student portfolio design
We are looking for partners for Erasmus project KA 104. Our main aims are to share and extend our skills regarding teaching and training courses for adults, especially young adults and to discuss the organization of adult courses in general plus development and incorporation of students’ portfolios into the learning process.
Our educational centre is located in Plzeň (Pilsen) in the Czech Republic and it specializes in public language courses (English, German, Spanish, French and Russian, and Czech for foreigners), career counselling and seminars supporting life-long education, workshops, training and language courses for adults and educators under the framework of Further Education of Pedagogical Employees. We offer language courses A1-C1, children, adult, exam preparation plus a one-year intensive language course predominantly for secondary school graduates.
We would like to get in contact with an organization that deals with language teaching to carry out professional observations (job shadowing) and exchange ideas regarding methodology, motivation, burnout syndrome, form and approach as well as organization and the structure of the courses. We would also be very interested in learning more about students´ portfolios design as a part of students’ personal development and a guidance to their own learning process.
We are also open to host other organizations and individuals to discuss and share our point of view on teaching, learning, motivation and personal development of both teachers and students.
KEY WORDS: language teaching, language courses, all age groups, motivation, portfolios design, burnout syndrome, career counselling, support for life-long learning
