ECML Workshops

ECML projects usually include a central workshop in their proposed activities to allow for involvement of all ECML member states. This workshop is a unique event which plays a key role in the life of an ECML project, bringing experts together from different countries who contribute to the project’s development and act as multipliers in their own countries. Moreover, it acts as a platform for launching Europe-wide new ideas and innovative developments.

Participating experts are nominated by National Nominating Authorities in ECML member states and are expected to contribute not only to the workshop itself but to the overall development of the project and the dissemination/implementation of project outputs.

Given the important role of the workshop participants, teams and experts proposing a project will be asked to indicate:

  • the expected qualifications and expertise of the national representatives to be nominated for their workshop;
  • how they envisage the role of the workshop participants before, during and after the event itself; i.e. how to ensure that nominated workshop participants are actively involved throughout the life of the project and beyond.

After the workshop participants are asked to provide reports to their national authorities on how they envisage the implementation of the project ideas in their working context. Six months later the ECML asks participants to complete an online impact questionnaire. In this way the project teams can monitor the longer-term outcomes of the workshop at national level. 

Reference to Council of Europe and ECML policy documents and tools

As a Council of Europe institution, the ECML operates within the context of the ongoing language education work of the major European organisations . Projects are therefore expected to show how they will take account of existing European language education policies and tools. It is particularly recommended to build on such Council of Europe instruments as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the European Language Portfolio, and such ECML publications as EPOSTL (European Portfolio for Student Teachers of Languages) and CARAP (Framework of Reference for Pluralistic Approaches). Depending on the theme selected other Council of Europe and ECML publications may be relevant. A list of references is available here.

New technologies

The growing influence of new technologies on learning should be reflected in ECML projects. Applicants should consider how mobile technologies, online social networks and other interactive web applications will impact on further developments in the area of a particular project. The use of ICT in disseminating, interacting and getting feedback from as wide a cross-section of the target group as possible is positively encouraged. In order to facilitate the wider communication process, the ECML offers the possibility of broadcasting parts of workshops online and of organising webinars.
