LSP-TEOC.Pro Kick-off meeting
On Friday 2nd October, representatives of all partner institutions met online
for a Zoom meeting to kick off the LSP-TEOC.Pro project. The project’s aims,
designing an online, tailor-made LSP Teacher Training curriculum, were presented
and partners old and new introduced themselves. The next step, Output 1, entails
the analysis and synthesis of existing LSP teacher education and development
programmes in Europe and will be spearheaded by our partners at the University
The project consortium is highly enthusiastic to get started, the creation of a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) is especially relevant in times of lockdown and travel restrictions, which may limit access to educational resources for many. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, an in-person meeting is predicted for early next year and will take place in Germany.
Project start in September 2020
The LSP-TEOC.Pro project has started and all partners are excited.
Funded by the European Union, this Erasmus+ project builds on the success of
project, which created a curriculum for teachers of languages for
specific purposes (LSP). The LSP-TEOC.Pro project aims to broaden this
curriculum by creating a multilingual online course for LSP teacher training,
in consultation with LSP practitioners across Europe.
By creating a massive online open course (MOOC), the project will enable both prospective and accomplished LSP practitioners worldwide to expand their skills, even in the context of COVID-19 and the social distancing challenges it entails.
