Abstract: "This collection of case studies is intended to explore the nature of innovation in language education. It deals with the content of innovatory practice - accounts of projects which have researched and implemented new approaches to organising language teaching and learning - and the process - what factors have made some innovations successful? Why have some not had the anticipated effect? It draws very largely on the work of the first medium-term programme of activities of the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) in Graz from 2000-2003. A number of the co-ordinators of different projects have described their projects and have reflected on the working methods and the implementation of their work. In this way it gives an account of the significant contribution which the medium-term programme has provided." (Book Cover)Scope and content: III. Questionnaires on innovation IV. Conclusion: Key questions for the implementation of projects in language education V. Some proposals for research and development Appendix 1
