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.
