Knowledge transfer projects
The Institute for Multilingualism at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya and Richmond Publishing have created the Sponsored Classroom for Innovation in English Language Teaching, a meeting point for universities and the publishing industry.
Sponsored Classrooms are a form of cooperation between universities and one or more companies or institutions. Through a framework partnership agreement, both institutions promote the dissemination of knowledge and the holding of events related to this field that are of scientific, academic or cultural interest.
Through this partnership we aim to further develop academic, scientific and cultural activities that benefit society as a whole, particularly with regard to English language learning and instruction, with a view to fostering multilingualism in our society through educational innovation.
These activities include the provision of academic and language support by introducing English into teaching materials for compulsory secondary education in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands and the creation of a B1 English certification module for secondary and upper secondary school students.
