Didactics & Digital Humanities

Didactics will become one of the main research areas of our Excellence Project. In particular, the “Didactics & Digital Humanities” Unit will analyze how digital resources may be employed in teaching Foreign Languages and Foreign Literatures and Cultures to create new and innovative courses in Teacher Education (for the secondary school) and Languages for Specific Purposes (with reference to the domain-specific vocabulary and skills for the business world). Particular attention will be devoted to blended learning (which integrates the pedagogical experience in frontal teaching with flexible distance teaching and social networking) within an Accessible Learning Environment.

Blended learning will also be at the basis of teaching and methodological approaches devoted to students with disabilities. Contents will be developed according to the principles of multimediality and interaction, thus stimulating effective and highly-engaging learning paths.

At the end of the project our department will also offer innovative curricula of study, i.e. a three-year Bachelor’s degree (BA) and a two-year Master’s degree (MA) in Digital Humanities applied to Foreign Languages and Literatures. To offer an ideal continuity with our BA and MA, the PhD programme in Foreign Literature, Languages and Linguistics will also grant three scholarships per year for research studies being carried out on Digital Humanities.
