The Language Centre continuously develops its operations through projects and partner ventures. At present, the Language Centre is involved in two Finnish projects for the digitalisation of language learning.
FINELC 2digi – From analogue to digital
The FINELC network is coordinating a two-year project from 2017 to 2018 to produce material, instructions and educational models that support the digitalisation of language teaching. The project will produce both research and concrete models to support digital pedagogy.
DIGIJOUJOU – Flexible Finnish and Swedish learning and supervision for the needs of the future job market
This Finnish spearhead project aims to develop new digital pedagogy and diverse forms of teaching, create flexible study paths, and consolidate and expand nationwide cooperation across the boundaries of institutions of higher education.
The project involves four universities and eight universities of applied sciences. Coordinated by Aalto University, the three-year (2017–2019) spearhead project is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture and aims to create a new, diverse multi-media pedagogy for teaching and supervision in the national languages of Finland. Moreover, the project strives to improve language teachers’ expertise in digital pedagogy and to create flexible methods for teaching and supervision in Finnish and Swedish.
