Organising Inclusive EAL Provision in International Schools (Webinar)

This webinar will explore the different dimensions of inclusivity and discuss organisational strategies for more inclusive EAL provision.

This webinar explores what inclusive practice looks like in the context of international school EAL provision. We will identify different dimensions of inclusivity within EAL provision and look at practical ways each dimension can be developed. The talk will go beyond classroom strategies to outline a whole-school approach to including plurilingual learners (and staff) in school life. We will discuss different models of EAL provision and consider their impact on inclusivity, look at the implications for the curriculum and examine how inclusive practice might inform staff development and recruitment.  

Areas of focus will include:

  • The difference between integrated and inclusive practice; 
  • The four dimensions of an inclusive pedagogy for EAL (as per Evans et al., 2020); 
  • Evaluating the inclusivity of different models of EAL provision; 
  • Appropriate staff development for inclusive teaching; 
  • Organisational strategies for ensuring more inclusive provision.
