IC Guidelines and Training Models

  • 1. University of Turin


This deliverable contains a list of syllabi which portray the extent and specialization of the intercomprehension trainings organized within the UNITA project and which may be used as guidelines for IC courses which could be implemented by any university of the UNITA alliance.
The scientific literature overview and outputs produced during the first period of the project were used to establish a starting point from which UNITA began to build new syllabi, best practices and new action-research, making a solid contribution to the theoretical and practical development of pluri/multilingual education and multilingualism in general.
All syllabi were compiled under the guidance of UNITO to facilitate alignment among partners on knowledge of IC resources and skills. After this phase, IC teaching was consolidated and partners became more aware of existing practices and tools. After sharing basic references and mapping of previous and existing IC projects, WP3 worked on best practices to be shared both internally and externally to UNITA. A UNITA framework and various syllabi for IC teaching courses aimed at different target audiences were discussed and implemented.
Starting initially with the creation of a syllabus for the training of Erasmus students, the WP3 group then focused on a syllabus for the training of non-linguistic University Lecturers and then another for the training of administrative staff of UNITA partner universities. The Erasmus course was organized entirely online, allowing interaction between students from different institutions. Courses for faculty and staff were developed in a hybrid mode, with a presential part, at each institution, and an online part in interaction with colleagues from other universities, aimed at practicing interaction and communication in IC between speakers of related languages.
Other syllabi completed the training offer aimed at the acquisition of fundamental skills and knowledge for an aware multilingual communication: a syllabus for an online IC training for intercomprehension trainers, a syllabus for a COIL project aimed at students in intercomprehension courses, and a syllabus for a Blended intensive program (BIP) project.
