Abstract [en]

Language teaching for engineering students needs to be engaging and adapted to the specific needs the students will meet in their future professional lives. Our experience has shown that a blended learning course design as well as student-owned learning are especially well suited for these language courses. Further, a language course strongly based on online-meetings and digital resources, is part of a global trend where universities offer an expanding range of online-courses.    In this presentation, we will describe our multidimensional teaching model which combines three dimensions of teaching: online/face-to-face, synchronous/asynchronous and teacher-led/student-owned. A course-design that draws advantage from the potential offered by the combination of these dimensions, provides several pedagogical assets.    We will first develop the pedagogical added-values and will then illustrate how different learning/teaching activities fit in the different dimensions.    As an example, we will also present some international collaborative activities integrated in the language courses for engineers as a virtual mobility experience.
