Closely linked to the Bologna process this project introduces a number of improvements for small and medium sized departments. These advantages can be located at the following levels:

  • structural level: the efficient use and management of teaching resources within the BA/MA-curriculum.
  • didactic level: the clear shift from teacher-centred to learner-centred methods and the promotion of essential soft skills such as media competence and social competence within learning communities.

With regard to contents, the e-learning project eHistLing provides an innovative introduction to English historical linguistics. Based on a blended-learning approach, the course combines alternative didactic pathways to create an efficient and motivating web-based learning environment that promotes online communication and cooperation in order to support cognitive and social networking processes.
