What is TEFLhybrid@JLU?

Hybrid learning in foreign language teacher education

TEFLhybrid@JLU (TEFL = Teaching English as a Foreign Language; JLU = Justus Liebig University) is a newly developed course format that combines place-based, face-to-face instruction (f2f) in the classroom with more exploratory, collaborative, and increasingly self-regulated learning in virtual space (online). Within this format, all interaction takes place in the English language. ‘Hybrid learning’ implies a functional combination of various approaches and media:





In sum, all TEFLhybrid courses at JLU Giessen aim to develop students’ competencies and skills in two interrelated domains:

a) digital competencies

b) language pedagogy (TEFL)

In this way, the initiative seeks to prepare future EFL practitioners for foreign language learning in the 21st century.
