Giuseppe Maugeri


In this paper, theory and practice are interconnected in a case study to examine the suitability, multimodality and effectiveness of the training courses of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) for language teachers and university tutors of the Italian language across the world. The first part of the paper describes the theoretical framework underlying the training project design; the second part describes the qualitative research model used in order to explore, through an online questionnaire and focus group, the opinions of the informants as to the quality of the online course granted by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. In particular, the effects and impact of technology on the didactic activities of the participants are highlighted. The data obtained is useful in outlining a training model that effectively deploys technological tools to supply teachers with the latest digital competences for their everyday didactic activity.
