Article

Foreign language teaching at the university level has taken on importance and value over the last decade due to global competition between institutions of higher education. For this reason, language educators are faced with the challenge of looking for innovative teaching methods, which not only stimulate and motivate their students while encouragi...
Chapter
This reflective essay presents the journal as a transnational networking instrument for TESOL teacher education at the in-service level and beyond. The introspective and retrospective dimensions associated with journaling can be beneficial on many different levels for in-service teachers. The diachronic analysis and re-examination of daily in-class...
Book
Full-text available
This volume is focused on the teaching and acquisition of language for special, professional or general purposes, as well as the needs and challenges associated with foreign language pedagogy in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) or, more generally, Language for Specific Purposes (LSP). It presents innovative methodology and technology-integrated...
Article
Teaching is said to be “the profession that eats its young” (Halford, 1998, p. 34). Unfortunately, this is often the reality and norm associated with many performance-based careers today. Experienced teachers would agree that performance in the classroom begins the very moment you step in front of a classroom full of students. Those teachers, who a...

Article

In an increasingly global and mobile society, we are faced with greater cultural diversity both in our professional and private lives. As a result of this, more and more emphasis is being placed on the need for intercultural awareness, adaptation and respect for cultural differences. This is reflected in the updated (2013) Higher Education (HE) cur...
Article
Course design and lesson planning are constants in the professional life of all instructors. Since the lesson plan is the instructor's road map of what students need to learn and how it will be done effectively during class time, it should be the result of much contemplation and preparation. With regard to English for Specific Purposes (ESP) or Eng...

Marsh (2012) asserts that the use of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) in language teaching at the higher education level has the potential to encourage learners to acquire language in an immersion-style setting, since the integration of language and content provides a substantive basis for language teaching and learning (p. 135). The...

Project
From a didactic perspective, artificial intelligence provides many opportunities to improve language learning and teaching conditions, in terms of oral, written, and interactive skills. The introduction of robots in the language learning context is an opportunity to enable learners to practice and improve their language skills such as speaking (pronunciation, vocabulary, etc.). Experimentation in the field will therefore be possible through the introduction of AI and the use of robots in an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) course at the tertiary level. This will allow for the gradual passage of an analysis of errors from a written record to oral training with the assistance of a robot. The analysis of student attitudes and perception of AI is a precursor to the implementation of robots in language classrooms. This project will therefore make it possible to precisely identify the conditions for the advancement of knowledge and thus test the system, beforehand, and ultimately yield suggestions for improvements. The project will focus on an ESP course that introduces the notion of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Schwab, 2016) and the use of AI and robots in the professional sphere. This course has been administered since 2019 to students of Language Sciences and Information and Communication (around 130 to 160 students depending on the year) in a third year undergraduate course. A questionnaire in English was issued at the on-set and out-set of this course. This project aims to provide a detailed analysis of this data, which will shed light on the evolution of their attitudes and perceptions in relation to AI, as well as give insight into their capacity orlevel of acceptance of AI and robots in the language classroom.
Project
The aim of this book is to explore the pragmatic, functional, and didactic use of AI, robotics, and IoT in the classroom from primary to tertiary levels, whilst not only considering the various challenges teachers and students must face, but also focusing on the diverse opportunities AI, robotics and IoT can offer in a variety of learning contexts across the globe. We are seeking previously unpublished research.
