This roundtable explores innovative approaches to teaching Italian language, history, and/or culture. Of particular – but not exclusive – interest are methods that utilize digital resources (video games, websites, computer programs). What resources and genres make the most effective teaching tools? Can interactivity with technology influence the way students learn? Which linguistic, cultural, and literary concepts can best be illustrated?

Please submit presentation proposals by November 30, 2015 to:

Dr. Brandon Essary, Elon University, bessary@elon.edu
