Two2Tango: an online tandem course for teacher professionalization in English

Anne Falkenauer, Julie Walaszczyk (Université de Mons), Gertrude Croé (Haute Ecole Léonard De Vinci Brussels)

In the current context of globalisation, academics need to be prepared for the challenges posed by the international university. The Two2Tango project has been designed to help teachers reflect on their practices and better grasp the implications of teaching in a constantly evolving world. Through this online course, the ‘tandems’ exchange views on the material provided in the modules and participate in forum discussions, comparing their respective disciplines, institutional contexts and pedagogical concerns. In the process, they also practise and improve their communication skills in English in an academic setting.
