This book seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice by identifying the main challenges which the implementation of the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) is posing in language teaching. It reports on the outcomes yielded by prominent European research projects and thematic networks and presents the insights of a prestigious set of scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers from different parts of Europe.
The book is divided into four main parts. The first section examines the coordination of language studies in the European Higher Education Area, from general language policy development, to the practicalities of coordinating whole degrees or drawing up ECTS study guides. The second part analyses the concept of competencies within the Bologna process. Methodological aspects are broached in the third thematic block by sharing practical accounts and experiences across Europe. The final part seeks to clarify the most important aspects with regard to evaluating language learning in the new credit system, and examines learning outcomes, student work hours, or ECTS credits.

This book focuses on communicative classroom language for bilingual education and aims to equip language and content teachers with real, updated English expressions of direct relevance in CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) contexts. To this end, it presents a theoretical backdrop with the rationale underpinning the proposal and three sets of tried-and-tested original activities, classified according to type of lexical chunk, function, and level (Infant, Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Education). Students are encouraged to move from more controlled and basic stages of identification of these types of communicative chunks towards a freer type of production, through a wide variety of originally designed and piloted activities based on multimodal texts (gap-filling, matching, tic-tac-toe, sentence completion, error correction, T/F, multiple choice, ordering, odd-one-out). A full glossary is also provided with 330 useful expressions, as well as an answer key and printable posters and cut-outs which are directly applicable in the CLIL classroom.

Edited by Maria Luisa Pérez Cañado and Juan Ráez Padilla

This book seeks to foster the successful incorporation of digital competence in Bologna-adapted language degrees. To this end, it pools the insights of a set of international practitioners and investigators who report on classroom- and research-based experiences which have integrated ICT (information and communication technology) for specific and generic competence development within the Higher Education language context. Their research has evinced that digital competence can act as a catalyst for the development of other linguistic and generic competencies of crucial relevance in Higher Education language degrees, as well as the multiple literacies involved not only in digital and linguistic skills, but also cooperative learning, critical thinking and literary aspects. Thus, the contributions included in this volume seem to make a compelling case for the incorporation of ICT into the new language learning scenario provided by the implementation of the European Credit Transfer System.
