Abstract: This chapter establishes a debate about the concepts of creativity and collaboration with regards to learning English as a Second Language in Higher Education. The chapter focuses on a heuristic, mindful learning method set in a blended learning environment of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) at the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. Various task-based examples are provided to demonstrate that a mindful, collaborative and creative learning approach that allows for reflection, participation and autonomy can contribute to enhance ESP competences effectively. On the one hand, this chapter analyses the different communicative tasks that enabled learners to be collaborative and creative in class and online. On the other hand, the results will corroborate that active participants of their learning process create knowledge that is closed to their own spaces. Creation and collaboration for ESP students have benefits that contribute to a successful communicative approach of foreign language and ITC competences.
