Setting up a multilingual Language Teacher Association
In 2015, FIPLV Member Association BETA organised a Roundtable with representatives from several unilingual teacher associations in Bulgaria. The purpose was to explore the benefits of enabling language teachers of all languages to collaborate. The Roundtable explored these issues and shared a number of different models of collaboration, which had been recommended by a range of FIPLV member associations around the world.
This Handbook was produced as part of the ECML Project LACS (Language Teachers and Collaborative Support), coordinated by FIPLV, and is based on research with approximately 100 FIPLV members worldwide. It is a living document (and therefore labelled ‘draft’) but will form the basis of online discussions in coming years in order to keep the ideas updated and to add other sections. It provides many examples of how language teacher associations are managed, which obstacles they meet, how they may be involved in research etc.:
