Over the last two decades university education has undergone substantial changes in training processes and methodologies. Two different aspects provide the basis for the present monograph; on the one hand, accessing information, selecting it and generating knowledge from it; on the other, the fact that the student is the center of the learning process, which demands development in the interactive processes with other students and teachers, ability to adapt to the linguistic register of others, and sound command of communicative processes, both oral and written, among others. These aspects are essential in the training of future teachers, a subject that requires a more specific academic profile in those studying it.

Another aspect to take into account is the interaction between communicative competence and digital competence, which implies that digital literacy should include, but not be restricted to, the technological dimension, which is only a basic instrument designed to integrate communicative, social and participative dimensions, all of them of great importance for teacher training. But the scientific literature shows that students who undergo teacher training demonstrate significant deficiencies in both competences, which evidently hinders the improvement of performance of their future students.


  • Design and assessment of online programs to improve the performance of communicative and digital competence.
  • Systematic Reviews (meta-analysis) related to communicative and digital competence, in relation to the didactic-curricular advances that enable improvement in their performance.
  • Qualitative studies based on the students’ assessment of the online programs they have studied.
  • Descriptive studies on the situation of the students, related to their initial level of performance in both competences.
  • Correlation studies that justify the interaction between the different units of competency of both competences.
