The article focuses on the processes of digital transformation in higher education in the context of teaching EFL to Russian first-year students of non-linguistic specialties. Literature review on the challenges of introducing digital technologies into foreign language learning activities is given. Benefits of digital storytelling as a form of digital media production, allowing students to acquire both information technology skills and competences and a foreign language communicative competence, are considered. The comparative analysis of students’ typical errors, made in their oral narratives, is conducted. The potential of the use of digital storytelling in EFL university classroom is discussed. The authors’ experience in carrying out the digital storytelling project proves its potential in a foreign language learning environment for developing and improving both students’ professional competences and soft skills.
