Telecollaborative Projects for Teaching English for Professional and Academic Purposes

Palabras clave: Telecolaboración, Trabajo mediante proyectos, Enseñanza de Inglés, Lengua para Fines Específicos

Resumen

El uso práctico del enfoque basado en proyectos mediante telecolaboración parece ser un recurso útil en el aula de idiomas extranjeros. Esta investigación tiene como objetivo analizar la percepción de los estudiantes sobre la necesidad de comunicarse en un ámbito global siguiendo la clasificación de las situaciones comunicativas más habituales propuesta por Lehman y DuFrene (2013). Para ello, se realizó un experimento entre estudiantes de la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV) y del Instituto Politécnico Igor Sikorsky de Kiev (KPI) durante el semestre del curso 2020/21. Estudiantes de ambas universidades trabajaron virtualmente en equipos mixtos internacionales en sus proyectos para crear blogs sobre el tema 'Sustainable development today’. Nuestros resultados mostraron que los estudiantes de ambas instituciones mejoraron su confianza para comunicarse en contextos profesionales y académicos durante la realización de este proyecto. Los participantes mejoraron su competencia comunicativa en entornos online internacionales, y esta experiencia de intercambio virtual les ayudó a desarrollar sus habilidades digitales e interculturales, entre otras. El valor de esta investigación es la implementación de un trabajo mediante un proyecto telecolaborativo en el aula de lengua extranjera con el objetivo de ayudar a los estudiantes a comunicarse en un contexto global sobre cuestiones técnicas, como la sostenibilidad.
