Flipped classroom & COIL in additional language teaching following a plurilingual perspective

icon -    icon Comments

I have a degree in English and German Studies from the University of Deusto, Bilbao, and a Master’s in Pedagogical Innovation and Educational Leadership from Ramon Llull University, Barcelona.  I hold a PhD in the use of the flipped classroom to teach English as an additional language in higher education, with a cum laude distinction. 

 I previously worked in the Department of Foreign Languages at the University of Deusto and the School of Modern Languages (EIM) at the University of Barcelona.

 Since 1992, I have been teaching at the Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences in Blanquerna, Ramon Llull University. I am a researcher in the Education, Didactics, and Learning Research Group (GREDA)  and a member of the EUniTA (Tandem E-Learning Platform) research group. Additionally, I have taught in the Master's Degree in Compulsory Secondary Education and Baccalaureate Teacher Training, Vocational Training and Language Teaching. I have also been a tutor for final degree dissertations at Blanquerna, Ramon Llull University. 

My primary area of interest is the integration of AI and new technologies in teaching English as an additional language from a plurilingual perspective, with a particular focus on implementing the flipped classroom approach. I am also interested in participating in COIL programs dealing with education teacher training. This initiative aims to foster intercultural exchange, enhance language skills, and promote plurilingual perspectives in teaching additional languages and literature.

I am eager to collaborate with colleagues from other institutions on any education-related COIL project. Specifically, I am interested in forming COIL partnerships focused on teaching additional languages from a plurilingual perspective and/or utilising the flipped classroom approach. Such collaborations would provide valuable opportunities to share best practices, develop innovative teaching strategies, and enhance the overall learning experience for students.
