Abstract

The Digitalisation has rapidly developed into one of the main drivers of change in higher education (HE) and language learning in Finland. Consequently, there are multiple active ministry-funded national projects that have been initiated to support this development. One of them is DIGIJOUJOU, the main aim of which is develop digital pedagogy and materials for teaching Finnish and Swedish (both official national languages in Finland) to be utilised both at universities and universities of applied sciences. In this paper, we introduce some highlights of the DIGIJOUJOU sub-project Tyoelaman suomi ('Finnish for working life'), which develops study modules for a 3 - 5 ECTS of independent studying.
