Languages and New Technologies: Learning Digital Portfolio in the Stylistics of English

  • María Alcantud DíazEmail author
Part of the New Frontiers in Translation Studies book series (NFTS)


The new perspective of the European Higher Education Area involves new methodologies which foster the information and communication technologies (ICTs). Educating (i.e. teaching and learning) by means of the European Credits Transfer System (ECTS) produced some very significant changes in issues such as “permanent learning and active learning” (Barragán 2009: 2) and ‘learning by means of (professional) competences’ which entail new learning methodologies and new evaluation processes.
