CLIL Project: Virtual Reality in English for Medicine and Psychology undergraduate students

 

The use of Virtual Reality (VR) within the educational field has been described as a meaningful tool for students to learn, clarify and get a deeper understanding of specific topics while practicing a foreign language. The Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures jointly with professors from the Medicine and Psychology schools have initiated a project to implement VR as a medium of instruction for content and language integrated learning (CLIL).

 

The project embraces the use of virtual reality in order to potentialize the comprehension of some concepts and processes presented in English, such as “action potential”, “synapsis”, “human ear” and “human eye”. The content and exercises are displayed in 3D, giving students the opportunity to interact, manipulate and practice with the content within an immersive environment, while practicing English.
