The ELLiL project pioneers a new model for teaching practice, promoting the agency and creativity of student teachers in English teaching and learning through literature. We aim to develop English learning as a window of opportunity for creative, socially relevant education – deep reading for in-depth learning. The main project target group is student teachers on university programmes for teaching in grades 1 – 10.

The project is rooted in cooperation between the Faculty of Education and Arts, Nord University, Norway, and the School of Education, Bishop’s University, Québec, Canada and implemented with the support of the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education, DIKU’s NOTED program. The project period is 2020-2023.
