What does “Educational Cooking with CHAGAL” mean?
An essential component of the CHAGAL Programme (Curriculum Higher Education Access Programmes Guidelines for Underrepresented Adult Learners) consists of sixteen pilot projects, which should help to gauge the suitability of the CHAGAL guidelines. In the spring of 2005, these examples of “good practice” were supplemented during a seminar at the ECML (European Centre for Modern Languages) by contributions from 9 other member states of the Council of Europe.
what's a project?
The result was a collection of twenty two models from numerous linguistic and cultural backgrounds, involving different disciplines and setting a wide range of objectives. We selected eighteen particularly representative examples for this “recipe book”.
This CD chapter provides a brief description of the projects that have been undertaken. It describes the various situations at the outset, sketches the processes and discusses possible links between projects.
We have modelled this selection of sample courses on a recipe book, because the process of preparing and implementing a course is comparable to cooking. Another reason is that, all being well, it will also be enjoyable.
Furthermore, the format of a recipe book has been chosen because every chef can, and of course should vary his/her “recipes” based on his/ her “taste” and the conditions with which he/she is faced when he/she starts cooking.
