A framework of reference for pluralistic approaches

Teacher training: other tools and experiences

This page offers self-study materials for teachers and other educational stakeholders. There are four modules: a discovery module, a module concerning the relationship between pluralistic approaches and language education policy, and two modules presenting specific uses of FREPA in the classroom. These modules can also be used by teacher trainers in their preparation of training sessions.

Using the materials in autonomous training

  • We would recommend that you form a small group with colleagues who are willing to work with this material.  This will give rise to fruitful exchanges which will help develop useful knowledge. In the modules, we will often indicate precisely at which moments discussions should take place.  Needless to say, it is perfectly possible to do this work alone if the circumstances do not permit otherwise.

  • Download the documents you will find on the page which features the module you are going to work on (cf. the menu on the left).  This will make your task easier!

  • The Powerpoint is the backbone of every module. You will begin with this presentation which will indicate at which point(s) you will need to refer to the other documents.

  • Each module will require two to three hours to complete. It is always possible to stop working and to take up the task later on.  

Some training tools

Examples of Powerpoints, used by the FREPA team in training sessions, can be found on the Powerpoint page of the website.

It also includes an evaluation questionnaire that can be used after working with the discovery module in training sessions.

Note: the site also offers training tools in languages other than German, English and French. See the Country pages and FREPA in other languages.
