Based on its success at the 2016 AAIS conference, this roundtable will seek to explore again innovative approaches to teaching Italian language, history, culture, or literature. 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 (in Italian or English) of no more than 250 words and a brief biographical blurb to:
