Description: A Fast Track to Professional English (3ECTS) is an online English course jointly designed and taught by two vocational English teachers of Tampere University of Applied Sciences. This English course is intended for students with relatively high level of competence in English language. The objective is to provide Engineering and Health Care students with an opportunity to accomplish their compulsory professional English course faster, more independently and in a more student-centered manner.  The content, methods and assignments enable and facilitate collaborative and self-directed working and learning online. They also support multiprofessional collaboration among Engineering and Health Care students, and develop as well as show a students linguistic, communicative and reflective proficiency and performance.  Students work on a variety of assignments both individually and together in multiprofessional groups. We will share our experiences by presenting the outline of the course and showing a few examples of the assignments and the activities.
