New focuses and methodologies in second language teaching have gained presence in the Catalan schools in the last few years. Moreover, the digitalization of students and the increasingly common use of new technologies, as well as the current sanitary situation, have resulted in a greater presence of new technologies in second language teaching. Thus, teachers need to develop their new technology skills. This course presents an introduction to new methodologies in English teaching, including the communicative approach, project-based learning and CLIL. New digital tools, which facilitate the dynamization of lessons both in the classroom and in online teaching, will also be provided. Lessons will be held online, combining live streaming lectures with the independent work of the student using the resources available on the course’s site, which will be guided by the instructor.
