Professional Development for Teachers of Italian

ILC offers Italian professional development workshops and proficiency days throughout Queensland, in partnership with the Dept. of Education and Training, Catholic Education Offices and Independent Schools Queensland.

These sessions aim to enhance teaching strategies and improve language proficiency of teachers delivering Italian programs across all sectors.

Italian workshops aim to impart language teaching strategies to: 

  • enrich presentation of content to aid student understanding and assimilation
  • encourage student interaction with content to enable its internalisation
  • prompt students to reproduce and apply internalised language creatively

Over the last 40 years, ILC has been promoting the teaching and learning of Italian language and culture throughout Queensland in close collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs MAECI (Ministero Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale).

Through this productive partnership ILC has been able to channel approved MAECI funding into events that support Italian teaching and learning state-wide.

The aim of this event is to support teachers in maintaining a sound Italian language proficiency threshold which contributes to being an effective language teacher.
