In breve

Higher education, which is undergoing a shift due to an increase in digitalization worldwide, needs to refocus its teaching practices by designing flexible courses catering to students’ multifarious post-pandemic needs. The present volume provides a digitally-enhanced framework suitable for designing and implementing flexible courses in English-Taught Programs (ETPs). Language awareness, a key component of ETPs, is especially examined within a Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) framework.

Presentazione del volume

Higher education, which is undergoing a shift due to an increase in digitalization worldwide, needs to refocus its teaching practices by designing flexible courses catering to students' multifarious post-pandemic needs. In this light, the present volume provides a digitally-enhanced framework suitable for designing and implementing flexible courses in English-Taught Programs (ETPs). Language awareness, a key component of ETPs, is especially examined within a Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) framework. In this respect, from an open pedagogy perspective, a technology-enhanced SFLinformed embedded disciplinary literacy framework is formulated, suitable for local and global online ETP learning environments. On the basis of the framework devised, some transformative digitally-enhanced language awareness practices are developed using text mining. Online course design is also investigated along with collaborative activities instrumental in fostering effective digitally-enhanced learning. Finally, the prototype of a HyFlex (Hybrid-Flexible) course module is developed, suited to implementing virtual mobility in ETPs.

Giovanna Carloni is a lecturer at the University of Urbino, Italy.
