Abstract
The objective of this Erasmus+ KA203 project was 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 was to develop an online course which will be made available to the LSP community as an Open Educational Resource (OER). The OER solution has been implemented as self-directed course content on a learning management system (LMS). The LMS allows 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 is available in all languages of the strategic partnership consortium, namely in Croatian, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Slovenian, and Turkish.
Significance for science
The project aimed to develop an online course that would be made available to the LSP community as an Open Educational Resource (OER). The OER solution has been implemented as self-directed course on a learning management system (LMS). The LMS allows interested parties to self-enrol and study the course content in its entirety or those sections which are deemed to be of special interest. The whole curriculum itself (content, methodology, design) and a variety of statistics on the different uses of online education (learning analytics) are available for further analysis/research.
Significance for the country
The project partners have contributed to the development of an LSP online course previously not available in any project partner country, including Slovenia. The LSP-TEOC.Pro project consists of the following outputs: ● O1 Analysis and synthesis of existing LSP teacher education and development programmes ● O2 Definition of an online teaching methodology ● O3 Development of course content for LSP teacher education and development ● O4 Implementation of online course for new LSP Teacher Education Development on Internet platform ● O5 Piloting developed LSP Teacher Education online course ● O6 Trialling developed LSP Teacher Education online course ● O7 Analysis of trialling user data and application of learning analytics ● O8 Methodologies guidelines – Evaluation method and tool
