A Competence-based Perspective on Foreign Language Teaching at the Master Level: Insights from John Dewey’s Educational Philosophy (English version)
AbstractThe article determines the specific bundle of competences and strategies underpinning the modern process of foreign language teaching by building upon the selected elements of educational philosophy of John Dewey. The article proceeds by reconstructing some of these elements and subsequently by drawing implications for the competence development strategies in the foreign language teaching. The main implications include adopting cutting-edge teaching technologies and fine-tuning and individualizing teaching materials. A key aspect of teaching technologies to be adopted is assisting students in developing their own self-study strategies.
