The objective of this Erasmus+ KA203 project is to provide students and teachers of Languages for Specific Purposes (LSP) with a multilingual online course which will allow them to acquire the competences needed for a successful implementation of teaching languages in a specific context. The developed online course targets future and early career teachers which may not have received sufficient education in LSP teaching given the prevalent gaps in LSP teacher training in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The aim is to develop an online course which will be made available to the LSP community as an Open Educational Resource (OER). The OER solution will be implemented as self-directed course content on a learning management system (LMS). The LMS will allow interested parties to self-enrol and study the course content in its entirety or those sections which are deemed of special interest. The course content will be available in all languages of the strategic partnership consortium, namely in Croatian, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Slovenian and Turkish. It will be available online but can also be downloaded and integrated into existing institutional LMS systems.
The strategic partnership consortium consists of ten member institutions out of which nine are directly involved as teachers of languages for specific purposes (LSP). Members of all the following prestigious universities are directly and actively involved in the project:
- JADE HOCHSCHULE WILHELMSHAVEN/OLDENBURG/ELSFLETH in Germany
- UNIVERSITE DE BORDEAUX in France
- UNIVERZA V LJUBLJANI in Slovenia
- UNIVERSITA’ DEGLI STUDI DI BERGAMO in Italy
- ARCOLA RESEARCH LLP in United Kingdom
- UNIVERSIDAD DE CADIZ in Spain
- UNIWERSYTET IM. ADAMA MICKIEWICZA W POZNANIU in Poland
- SVEUCILISTE U ZAGREBU in Croatia
- UNIVERSITY OF CUKUROVA in Turkey
In order that we are able to enrol participants, monitor progress, provide certification, effectively evaluate and improve this course we need to collect personal information from participants. Any information collected will be used for course administration, certification and research and development purposes only. Your personal details will not be used except in relation to course delivery, participation and evaluation. We would also like to keep you informed of LSP-TEOC events and publications such as the project’s final conference.
The project comprises different intellectual outs the aim at addressing the needs to successfully create a free online course for LSP teachers and learners alike.
Consortium members communicate regularly in order to successfully attain the goals of the project. They have the following communication tools: face-to-face meetings (six transnational project meetings in total during the course of the project), e-mail, telephone, and Zoom for video-conference calls.
