The Department of Arts and Languages, Faculty of Education, in collaboration with the Società Dante Alighieri, is organising a lecture entitled:
Insegnare/imparare l’italiano? – È un gioco... di parole! ovvero, La ludolinguistica nella glottodidattica
The conference will be held by Professor Emeritus Anthony Mollica on Monday 21 May from 1500hrs to 1700hrs in the M.A. Vassalli Conference Centre - Gateway (GW) Hall E.
Anthony Mollica is Professor Emeritus of Education at Brock University, Canada, where he taught methodology courses in French, Italian and Spanish from 1984 until 2003. He is now a professor at the University of Toronto, where he teaches methodology and creative writing. He also delivers lectures during summer courses held for teachers in Italy and has been invited to hold seminars, talks and lectures at universities all over the world. He has also published more than 80 articles and 50 books. His most recent book, Ludolinguistica e Glottodidattica, the first of its kind to present applied recreational linguistics as an approach to teaching a second language, led Italy’s top language history professionals, last November, to unanimously proclaim him honorary member of the prestigious Association for the History of the Italian Language. Professor Mollica has made significant contributions to second / foreign language teaching and learning during his illustrious career. His introduction of the 'fun-element' and problem-solving activities in the second/foreign language curriculum have been defined as groundbreaking and his innovative contributions in language instruction have been widely recognised at international level. Professor Anthony Mollica has received prestigious awards both in Canada and in Italy.
