E-LEARNING IN CULTURE STUDIES INSTRUCTION – DESIGNING, IMPLEMENTING AND EVALUATING A STUDY PROGRAMME

E-LEARNING IN CULTURE STUDIES INSTRUCTION – DESIGNING, IMPLEMENTING AND EVALUATING A STUDY PROGRAMME
Ewa Półtorak, Halina Widła, Jarosław Krajka (Poland)
 
Abstract: The aim of the article is to reflect upon the process of designing an online course aimed at familiarising foreign language learners with the basics of culture of target language countries, which are often the destination of Erasmus mobility visits. The course “NIE TAKI ERASMUS STRASZNY…” (Don’t be that scared of Erasmus…) was targeted at students planning to make a foreign visit within the Erasmus+ framework, who have achieved the necessary proficiency level and who are willing to expand their intercultural knowledge and skills to accommodate better to a new linguistic-cultural reality. The paper is composed of three main parts, which contain reflections on the design of the course, a detailed discussion of all the stages of its development and the final evaluation of the course reviewer.
Keywords: e-learning, foreign language teaching/learning, developing Intercultural Communicative Competence, Erasmus+ programme
