The project “Teacher Education About Multilingualism” (TEAM) aims to educate pre-service and in-service teachers in Higher Education Institution settings about various aspects of multilingualism and bilingualism.  

Therefore, TEAM aims to: 

  1. strengthen the professional training of teachers and other educators in HEIs by preparing them to better deal with linguistic and cultural diversity in the classroom, 
  2. prepare teachers and other educators to better respond to the needs of students with migration backgrounds by making their teaching more socially relevant and inclusive, 
  3. improve the quality of academic instruction by creating a new interdisciplinary course curriculum and teaching resources linking teacher training with relevant and up-to-date bilingualism research. 

In order to meet these objectives TEAM will develop an innovative and flexible course and an open education resource that will make state-of-the-art, research-based knowledge about bilingualism available to pre-service and in-service teachers in HEIs.
