Online environments and hybrid contexts are playing an increasingly important role in language teaching. Without a doubt, technology plays an essential role in our classes. However, the digital competence of our students, and ours as teachers, is also evolving. At this time, we must reflect on whether this technology is aligned in a coherent way with the way we learn. After all, the brain will continue to be our main learning technology.
In this course, we will offer proposals to align technology and learning through good practices in order to: plan an online class, create dynamics that actively involve and keep students' attention, and offer feedback on the learning processes. We will focus on dynamics that favor interaction and active learning in the classroom.
The evaluation will be based on the assignment that will be developed throughout the different modules, that is, designing an action plan to carry out an innovative project in the classroom, adapted to the educational context of each teacher. In order to evaluate the final assignment, the following components will be taken into account:
Participants will receive feedback from their classmates and the tutor in each module and on the final assignment.
The course is presented from an active and collaborative approach, based on the pedagogical ideas on which the course is based, and focused on the learner from the global concept of learning-by-doing. It promotes both individual work and communication and collaboration with other course participants, in addition to submitting work and participating in forums. The activities will be carried out both individually and collaboratively. It is intended to promote the autonomy of the participants and develop strategies so that they are able to independently solve the difficulties that may arise once the course is finished.
Students who have participated in this course will receive a certification of achievement issued by the Cervantes Institute and Nebrija University, and which will be sent by this university to the interested party. To do this, students must actively participate in communication activities and pass the course assessment tasks with the grade of "Pass".
