Abstract [en]

The field of language learning has gone through considerable changes with the emergence of new technologies, the endless resources available on the Internet and machine translation tools. The digitalization process with a constantly and instantly range of possibilities for online-language learners has led us to reconsider the format of our language courses. This has subsequently had an impact on the course design, the teacher’s role as well as the student’s role.   Language courses at KTH aim to prepare students for their future professional lives and have a strong focus on language for specific purposes (LSP). These courses have few teaching hours and are very intensive. Furthermore, they are elective courses for most of the students, which requires engaging and flexible learning and teaching formats. Our experience has shown that a blended learning course design as well as student-owned learning are especially well suited for these language courses.  We want to present our multi-dimensional format 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 added-values.
