THE USE OF MEDIA FOR BILINGUAL TEACHING IN HIGHER EDUCATION: PERCEPTIONS OF TEACHING STAFF

Bilingual education has recently become one of the key teaching objectives at different educational stages all around Europe. Although this phenomenon has been mostly experienced in early educational stages such as primary or secondary, it is currently being displaced to tertiary levels. The implementation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and the increasing need to attract students from third countries have speed the processes of language policy implementation in many of the Spanish Higher Education institutions. Nevertheless, university teaching professionals consider there is still a lack of methodological techniques and teaching strategies for this purpose, which has increased the need and demand of such resources among the bilingual teaching community. As a result, they have to deal with the traditional teaching methodologies commonly used in their lectures in a bilingual context. The present study analyzes the preferences and difficulties found by lecturers when using certain types of media to support their teaching in bilingual classrooms. Data were obtained from questionnaires conducted online to 20 lecturers from four different universities of the South of Spain (CEIA3 universities). These surveys has been focused on engineering studies of CEIA3 universities (Cordoba, Almeria, Huelva and Jaen). Results show that there are certain social and training factors that determine the preference of use of this type of resources when applied in bilingual settings.
