Thematisch-konzeptioneller Rahmen der Tagung (auf Deutsch)


Introduction

The three thematic fields, namely ‘multilingualism/interculturality’, ‘language acquisition, learning and teaching in various settings’, ‘digitisation/digital culture’ overlap, and this overlap is precisely what the Convegno is about. Discussions on multilingualism, interculturality as well as learning and teaching in various settings were already taking place in the field of education during the ‘pre-digital’ age. However, with the advent of digital transformation, there is a need to bring up questions pertaining to linguistic and intercultural understanding. With modified framework conditions and requirements, the availability of digital resources gives a whole new dimension as to where and how linguistic skills are acquired and taught.


A more detailed thematic and conceptual framework is available in German.


Languages

As in previous editions of the Convegno, the languages commonly used are German, French, Italian and Romansh. Oral presentations will be supported by a printed format translated into two languages (as for example a written document in two languages). German, French, Italian and Romansh can be used for questions and comments.

Digital transformation is having a huge impact on all areas of modern society. Over the last two decades, it has radically changed the way we live and communicate with one another, thereby raising a number of issues concerning linguistic and cultural understanding as well as learning contexts:


- What potential do the media and digital resources have when it comes to learning and teaching languages in multilingual and multicultural settings?
- How, and in what learning contexts – formal, informal, non formal – are digital media used to communicate linguistically and culturally?
- What are the challenges faced by teacher training, teacher continuing professional development as well as research and development?
- In the field of multilingualism, where do the risks and opportunities lie in relation to the digitisation of the learning and teaching environment?


The organisers of this biennial event on multilingualism are the Teacher Training Colleges of the cantons of Wallis, Ticino and Graubünden. These three institutions have alternately organised and hosted the “Convegno sul plurilinguismo” since 2012. The next conference, held on 7 and 8 October 2021 in Brig, is organised by the Teacher Training College of Wallis.


The purpose of the Convegno is to discuss the above-mentioned questions thanks to theoretical, conceptual, empirical and practical contributions. Various possibilities of developing and promoting multilingualism in the digital context will be proposed and explored.


Target audience: The Convegno is intended for current and future teachers from all schools, and for professors and scientific collaborators from higher education. It is also targeting people in charge of continuing professional development as well as heads of institutions in the field of languages, ICT, interculturality, etc.


The programme includes conferences, papers, workshops, posters and stands, and it will encourage discussions. Participants will also have the opportunity to exchange views informally and to network with colleagues. Apart from scientific and didactic presentations, the programme will be enhanced by cultural entertainment and trips.


Digital media, didactic approaches, tools and methods are not only at the heart of the key themes, but they are also part of the organisation of the Convegno to promote multilingualism.


Languages: As in previous editions of the Convegno, the languages commonly used are German, French, Italian and Romansh. Oral presentations will be supported by a printed format translated into two languages (as for example a written document in two languages). German, French, Italian and Romansh can be used for questions and comments.


Publication: Presentations and interventions will be collected and made available to an interested audience and to the professional community. Papers presented at the Convegno will be published in the June edition of the Journal Babylonia (2022). Further information on other publication media (such as websites, magazines, etc.) will be given at a later date.
