Catapult: Computer-Assisted Training And Platforms to Upskill LSP Teachers

Outline

CATAPULT – Computer-Assisted Training And Platforms to Upskill LSP Teachers – is a 3-year project which aims to meet this objective by training highly-skilled language educators, in adult and higher education, equipped with the necessary professional skills to train Language for Specific Purposes (LSP) learners in the digital era. By developing a Common Competence Framework, a training programme delivered through a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for European language teachers, an accreditation procedure and a Community of Practice (CoP) Platform, it is envisaged that LSP teachers (and teacher trainers) will be provided with a tool-kit enabling them to be more adequately skilled LSP teachers and more competitive on the adult and higher education job markets, thus increasing their employability and career options

The “Language learning and social media: 6 key dialogues” (LS6) project  (January 2010-February 2013) is not one of the company’s projects but it was a trigger for the launch of the company. Katerina Zourou, Giulia Torresin and Tatiana Codreanu have worked for the project, through different affiliations. Katerina, project manager of LS6 throughout the project lifetime and Giulia, financial officer in 2012, were hired by the University of Luxembourg and Tatiana, as social media expert in 2012-2013, worked remotely from UK.

We are thankful to our past team at the University of Luxembourg and to Charles Max, project coordinator, for giving us very responsible positions in the project and for allwoing us to build expertise that was necessary for us to “open our wings” with the launch of our company.
