3. Language pedagogy models for teaching and supervision

This sub-project develops models for learner-centred language teaching and the supervision of learning. Our pedagogy is based on themes and language use situations that are relevant to the learners, with a focus on operating in professional life. The models are especially designed to be applied in the language instruction provided by higher education institutions. Sub-project 3 also develops study modules, materials for continuous assessment, and other language pedagogical solutions. The professional collegiality and skills of teachers are developed in national seminars and workshops.
