Please note: this article is in Greek. A collaborative project Flinders University – Charles Darwin University: In this paper the “Collaborative project Flinders University – Charles Darwin University” is described, analysed and evaluated. The unique character of the GDLT in Modern Greek at CDU relies on a consortium of partners: institutional, governmental (NT and Greek government) and community-based, consisting of the Northern Territory Department of Employment, Education & Training, the Consular representative from the Greek Ministry of Education, primary and secondary school principals, members of the Greek community in Darwin and prospective students. The Graduate Diploma in Language Teaching (GDLT) is a full fee-paying course taught via internal and external delivery modes in metropolitan Adelaide, the rural sector and interstate and is aimed at qualified primary and lower secondary (middle school) teachers who wish to acquire a second language in order to include a LOTE (Language Other Than English) in their teaching portfolio. The GDLT’s dual focus on the acquisition of proficiency in a second language and language instruction methodology provides a unique, flexible teacher-training program. The course is aimed at beginner’s levels but can accommodate more advanced proficiency levels for qualified teachers seeking language proficiency in Greek, together with basic principles of LOTE learning and teaching. The “methodology” module comprises language teaching and learning theory, language methodologies and classroom-based research.
