Internship at Saber Pro Cross Curricular Competence: English Course
Sierra López, Diana Yesmith | 2020-12-10
This internship was carried out at Universidad de Córdoba, in the frame of Saber Pro
course. Its main purpose was to offer interns an authentic experience in English teaching
taking into account virtual sceneries as a response to continue teaching EFL during the
current pandemic situation, COVID 19. This report follows a methodology that focuses on
the Flipped Instructional and a Gamification approach, which were the foundation of the
lessons planned during this internship. The sessions were through virtual modality in periods
of three hours each one, and the groups were mostly 10th-semester students of various
programs in Universidad de Córdoba. Moreover, the attitude of students at the end of the
course showed to be more open and their participation increased considerably. At the end of
this internship, it could be observed that the Gamification approach had a positive impact on
students' perception of English classes. The pedagogical theories used in this internship are
explained in this paper along with the description of the lesson plan of one of the sessions.
Finally, the conclusions, recommendations, and limitations of this experience are asserted.
