Nord University, Norway and the Erasmus+ ICEPELL project partners welcome you to our virtual symposium webpage.
The symposium took place on 7 – 8 June 2021 and the key themes were picturebooks, intercultural citizenship education and English language learning with children aged 5 to 12 years. We were joined by a lively audience tuning in from over 80 countries!
The exciting programme included read-alouds by two picturebook authors: Gro Dahle and Steve Antony, keynotes by Sandie Mourão, Gail Ellis, Carol Read, Nayr Ibrahim and David Valente, a panel discussion hosted by the Nord University research group, Children’s Literature in English Language Teaching (CLELT), an introduction to eTwinning by Silvana Rampone and Fabrizio Ferarri, and a superb plenary by the one and ony Michael Rosen!
Most importantly, the symposium showcased the teaching resources that the teachers participating in the ICEPELL project have created. These teaching packs, or ICEKits, are created by practitioners for practitioners, and we were thrilled to have the first teacher cohort sharing their experiences during the symposium.
Video recordings of this event are now available in the media section!
