This conference will focus on the challenges to research and teaching that 21st century classrooms and learning environments pose. In particular, we will discuss questions such as: How do young adults learn in the digital era? How do we tailor our courses to reach the more diverse, independent, tech-savvy, and active students that sit before us in the classroom? How do we incorporate 21st century skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication and leadership into our lessons to better prepare our students for success when they reach the job market? These topics are at the core of the 2019 Italian Language and Culture Conference organized at Georgetown University as part of a series of events celebrating Italian Language Week in Washington D.C. The conference will provide a venue for educators to share their research and updated approaches and pedagogical strategies that have been successfully tested and adopted at both a course and program level in the high school and college classroom.
