Abstract:

This book seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice by
identifying the main challenges which the implementation of the ECTS
(European Credit Transfer System) is posing in language teaching. It
reports on the outcomes yielded by prominent European research projects and
thematic networks and presents the insights of a prestigious set of
scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers from different parts of Europe.

The book is divided into four main parts. The first section examines the
coordination of language studies in the European Higher Education Area,
from general language policy development, to the practicalities of
coordinating whole degrees or drawing up ECTS study guides. The second part
analyses the concept of competencies within the Bologna process.
Methodological aspects are broached in the third thematic block by sharing
practical accounts and experiences across Europe. The final part seeks to
clarify the most important aspects with regard to evaluating language
learning in the new credit system, and examines learning outcomes, student
work hours, or ECTS credits.
