Short Session Description (one line):

This presentation illustrates a 5-step project-based assignment aimed at developing students’ global competence, critical thinking, and digital skills.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) defines global competence as the ability to communicate with respect and cultural understanding in more than one language. Global competence may be developed by recognizing diverse perspectives, communicating ideas, and taking action. Being globally competent involves acquiring and applying disciplinary and interdisciplinary language and culture knowledge in diverse contexts.

This presentation illustrates a 5-step project-based assignment integrated into intermediate Italian courses at the University of Arizona to support learners’ growth toward global competence. Utilizing Paesani, Allen, and Dupuy’s (2016) multiliteracies framework, this project provides opportunities to develop critical thinking skills while engaging with digital literacy practices. In a semester-long research project, language learners utilize multimodal resources that contribute to a more holistic way of meaning-making and thinking critically about today’s intercultural and interconnected world.

The ultimate goal of this assignment is to support learners in their process of becoming global citizens and reaching the wider community through their own work. This project-based assignment, learners’ work, and their reflections will be described and discussed. The presenters will also provide materials and activities of the assignment which can be adapted and used by others in their own educational setting.
