Professional Training

One of the main aspirations of the Innsbruck Model of Foreign Language Education is to reach out to a diverse group of foreign language teachers and to close the gap between academic training and practical work in the classroom. We provides experienced foreign language teachers with the opportunity to learn about the latest research in the field of foreign language education and use it in their practical work. This improves the collaboration between student teachers in training and their supervising teachers - another important objective for IMoF. IMoF aims to break down barriers and overcome potential anti-climax perspectives between foreign language teachers by offering cross-linguistic training seminars.
