Abstract
The Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach has been mainly practiced in primary and secondary education, where its benefits are well documented. In recent years, CLIL is also experiencing a fast growth in higher education, and more and more universities across Europe are offering courses in a foreign language, English in most cases. This study presents an innovative experience at the Technical University of Madrid. The implementation of bilingual programs requires, besides a narrow collaboration between language teachers and content specialists, an active involvement of students in the teaching-learning process. We show how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays a crucial role in fostering CLIL. More specifically, we discuss how ICT broadens the range of multimodal resources that can stimulate active learning, interactive strategies and proactive learning attitudes.
