QuILL: Quality in Language Learning Conference Paper uri icon


  • The European project QuILL – Quality in Language Learning – is coordinated by Pixel-Italy in cooperation with the project applicant and scientific coordinator, Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB), Portugal, and funded by the Erasmus+ programme, KA2 – Strategic Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness. It intends to provide language teachers, language learners and education stakeholders with quality open educational teaching resources (OER), based on quality criteria validated in real teaching and learning contexts. It also aims to train language teachers with relevant digital tools, information and methodologies that will support them in their teaching. The QuILL project underlies three major intellectual outputs: 1. the creation of a database of on-line open educational resources (OER) for language teaching and learning of/in 18 European languages for specific purposes (LSP); 2. the creation of an on-line training package for the identification, use and creation of ICT-based language teaching sources for teaching languages at higher education level; and 3. the creation of a publication analysing the technological potential for language learning in European higher education systems. This paper aims to present the QuILL project, highlighting the three intellectual outputs that seven higher education institutions, members of the project’s consortium, will develop for two years. We shall also focus on the intended project’s results, beneficial not only to the higher education community, but also to everybody who wants to learn LSP in a more autonomous way.
