Abstract

This paper reports on how the FutureLearn MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) Becoming a Better Teacher was blended into English Language Teaching (ELT) university programmes in conjunction with telecollaboration.

It discusses how the addition of a MOOC blend can enhance a telecollaborative exchange by adding to it increased opportunities for social collaborative interaction on a global scale. BMELTET fosters the students’ reflection on online and blended learning and teaching to support their future teaching practice.

The paper illustrates how participating students – undergraduate ELT students from Spain and postgraduate ELT students studying in the UK - participated in both synchronous and asynchronous exchanges on the MOOC content.

The discussion will focus on how a holistic approach to the integration of technology into language teacher education programmes with a blend of formal and informal platforms can support students in reflecting on their beliefs.
