CoMoViWo is a project, which has out to create developed methods for teaching skills needed in intercultural working contexts when using either English or Spanish as a lingua franca in mobile or virtual communication.
CoMoViWo aims to improve student employability by developing communication literacy, providing skilled staff for virtual work. The learning materials are published on Canvas and are freely available for self-study or for teachers to use in their teaching. The results have been published in several articles.
Development in communication technology requires teaching new kinds of digital communication and language skills, cultural awareness and new media attitude. Studies show staff literacy skills do not meet the requirements of mobile/virtual work. A gap exists between graduate skills and employers expectations.
