ENVOL : une plate-forme collaborative en réseau au service de la conception de modules de formation en FOU

Abstract : Our contribution focuses on the process of developing a course in French for Academic Purposes (FOU) as part of the project called ENVOL (New Venus Students - Objectif Langue), following a call for projects won by the ADCUEFE Campus FLE. The educational objective of this project is therefore to design modules in FOU, intended for foreign students already enrolled in various courses of French universities, aimed at integration into the university environment and the acquisition of language and discursive skills, etc. necessary for their studies in their field of specialty. The development of these training modules was based on an online platform, the aim of which was / is to allow all the actors of the project (designers, coordinators, experts, etc.) from different university FLE centers to collaborate . We will begin by describing the context in which this project was born and then was carried out, specifying the various parameters which had a direct or indirect influence on our didactic choices. Then we will cross the theoretical notions from FOS (French for Specific Purposes) and FOU (French for Academic Purposes) and their concrete applications in the development of these modules. We will present the methodology we have adopted in order to position this project in a field already covered by numerous works. Then we will review the stages of the development of these FOU training modules, which was based on a collaborative platform bringing together many actors with multiple skills. We will focus on the following questions: what type of training, aiming at ambitious objectives of double academic acculturation, to design for audiences already captured by a full-time program in their specialization? To achieve both consistency and attractiveness of training, how to organize within a multiple team spread over sites and in contexts that are certainly similar but distinct? Has this same team formed a “community of practice” by knowing how to pool its knowledge and know-how? Did it contribute to the dissemination and success of the training?
