Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will walk out with a solid model of how to consolidate a digitally enhanced teaching and learning environment in higher education (HE).
They will also learn how to include all staff members in the process, even though they are heterogeneous in their ability to embrace and use an online language learning environment (OLLE).


The presentation will start with a short introduction, in the form of a tale to captivate the audience's attention.
The entire presentation will be delivered interactively on Mentimeter. The audience will be asked to actively participate by answering questions, prioritizing, creating word clouds, classifying, and so on.
Towards the end of the presentation, the original OLLE Model will be shared with the audience.
