Abstract

Welcome to the second volume in this series of papers dedicated to Innovative language teaching and learning at university. This publication follows in the footsteps of Cecilia Goria, Oranna Speicher and Sascha Stollhans, who hosted the 2015 conference at the University of Nottingham and edited the very first proceedings in the series, dedicated to the theme of “enhancing participation and collaboration” (Goria, Speicher, & Stollhans, 2016). InnoConf, as it has now come to be known, is a series of annual symposia primarily aimed at language-teaching practitioners in Higher Education (HE).

Keywords: languages, employability, global graduate, intercultural competence, digital skills, assessment.
