International Research Project: TEACUP

Together with my colleagues, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gehring, Dr. Sylke Bakker and Inga Zalyevska I am part of Teacher, Culture, Pluri (TEACUP), an international project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union (Ref. No. 2019-1-ES01-KA203-064412), which promotes the integration of plurilingual/pluricultural approaches into international foreign language teacher education. The project aim is to design versatile educational modules that equip teacher educators with resources and materials that promote a plurilingual and pluricultural approach to the teaching of foreign languages such as English (EFL).

TEACUP is the collaborative effort of a number of foreign language teacher trainers and researchers from seven institutions belonging to five countries: The University of Córdoba (Spain), Delegation of Education in Córdoba (Spain), Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg (Germany), University of Bremen (Germany), University of Lower Silesia (Poland), TEE: the Hungarian section of the European Association of Teachers (Hungary), Texas Woman’s University (USA).
