Justificada ausencia

Las dos últimas semanas he tenido olvidado el blog centrado en otras dos tareas.

Por un lado, he acabado una página personal, fernandotrujillo.com, una concesión a la vanidad, una puerta de acceso a mis otras webs y una manera de tener mis datos y mi trabajo un poco más ordenados.

Por otro lado, el pasado miércoles llegaron a Algeciras las compañeras del proyecto LEA: Mercé Bernaus (España), Martine Kervran (Francia), Ana Isabel Andrade (Portugal) y Anna Murkowska (Polonia). El Proyecto LEA (Language Educator Awareness) tiene como objetivo diseñar actividades para la formación del profesorado en plurilingüismo y pluriculturalidad. El proyecto enlaza con algunos otros en los que las compañeras estuvieron implicadas, como Ja-Ling o Evlang, dedicados al plurilingüismo. Precisamente mi función en el proyecto LEA era completarlo con la reflexión cultural (además de algunas tareas informáticas...) en torno a la pluriculturalidad.

Esta ha sido nuestra última reunión; los materiales, producidos por compañeros de 23 países europeos, ya están preparados para su publicación por el ECML. Ha sido una hermosa, emocionante y muy trabajada aventura. Ha merecido la pena personal y profesionalmente. Desde aquí les envío un abrazo a las compañeras, que ya estarán hoy de viaje a casa, a la espera de encontrarlas pronto en algún otro proyecto compartido.

Saludos

Tomado de la web del Proyecto LEA:
"Language teacher education has traditionally been focused on the didactic procedures for teaching particular languages. However, developments in contemporary society oblige educational institutions to face up to the challenges of plurilingualism and pluriculturalism. Consequently, it is necessary to enrich language teacher education by including the competences needed to promote linguistic and cultural diversity for the construction of "democratic citizenship, social cohesion, mutual understanding and respect".

Language and culture awareness help to promote these aims. The recognition and acceptance of diversity leads to the development of positive attitudes, which impel the individual to value diversity and to act in consequence. Such a programme would enable teachers become key social actors with a major role to play both locally as well as globally.

The materials and activities proposed for the language teacher training kit in this project will take into account the plurilingual approach presented in the Common European Framework for Languages that "emphasizes the fact that an individual person's experience of language in its cultural contexts expands, from the language of the home to that of society at large and then to the languages of other peoples" .

Following the Common European Framework for Languages, one of the aims of the materials that will be produced throughout this project will be to develop a linguistic repertory, in which all linguistic abilities have a place. Furthermore, the materials will present a pluricultural approach to promoting what the Framework defined as "the favourable development of the learner's whole personality and sense of identity in response to the enriching experience of otherness in language and culture".

A rationale and activities to promote democratic citizenship, social cohesion, mutual understanding and respect, will be one of the main objectives of the kit for language teacher trainers.

The LEA project is particularly relevant to the general thematic area expressed in the ECML call for proposals of the 2nd medium-term programme "Languages for Social Cohesion. Language Education in a Multilingual and Multicultural Europe" because the main objectives of the project are aimed at developing social cohesion through language teaching/learning among teachers and consequently among their students. This project has two main orientations: training and awareness raising. That is to say, by means of training language teacher trainers, the team members' main purpose is to develop plurilingual and pluricultural competences among language teachers and consequently among students at all levels.

This project will build on previous work done under one of the major focuses of the first medium term programme: 1.2 Language Awareness, Intercultural Competence, Multilingual Matters. Particularly, it will be a follow-up, extension and development of the Ja-ling project (ECML 1.2.1 and Socrates Jaling Comenius 95040-CP-1-2001-1-DE-COMENIUS-C21).

The present project is a clear step forward. The previous Ja-Ling project aimed at learners as the final target group; logically, the following phase had to be intended for language teacher educators. Thus, dissemination of the basic assumptions of the Ja-Ling approach is guaranteed to be larger and deeper."
