Abstract

The Bologna process (1999) gave impetus to the internationalisation of Higher Education Institutions in Europe. Mobility of both students and lecturers has increased; the latter, however, are often required to deal with increasing international classes without receiving adequate methodological training to face the challenge posed by changing language needs. With a view to offering remedy for this lack, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice developed a language-methodology support model, i.e. Academic Lecturing. Its main aim is to raise lecturers’ awareness of the language dimension of academic teaching, while allowing participants to experiment new teaching strategies and ICTs as a means to make lectures more interactive, accessible to students and effective. The format and syllabus of the course will be described, as well as the delivery methods, individual tailored service and feedback from participants, who took part in the editions which have been offered so far. Possible future developments to improve the quality of the service will also be discussed.
