Twice the teachers, twice the benefits? Helping CLIL Trainee Teachers Develop Collaborative Competence Through Co-Teaching


In bilingual education teamwork is necessary for teachers in order to coordinate with the different agents at school. Thus, collaborative competence is an important competence for CLIL teachers (Bertaux et al., 2010, Pérez Cañado, 2017). Research suggests that exposing trainee teachers to co-teaching experiences may help reduce the theory-practice gap, to improve reflective practice in the classroom, and to further develop teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge (Murphy & Martin, 2015). This presentation describes an experience of collaborative teaching developed in a CLIL course at Universidad Pontificia Comillas. We will reflect on the rationale, the main teacher roles, the coordination challenges, and the initial assessment of the experience.
