DiCE.Lang is a project within the ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education, a programme designed to develop and share innovative practices and to promote cooperation, peer learning, and exchanges of experiences.
The project DiCE.Lang is coordinated by the LMU Munich, Chair of TEFL (Prof. Christiane Lütge), and will be realized with partners from the University of Limerick, University of Latvia, University of Aveiro, and Siena Italian Studies. Together, these five institutions form the project consortium.
The aim of the three-year-project is to strengthen the profile of Digital Citizenship Education (DCE) vis-à-vis foreign language education. Thus, it seeks to empower younger citizens to participate actively and responsibly in a digital society and to foster their skills of using digital technologies effectively and critically.
In order to facilitate the implementation of DCE in curricula across Europe, the project will produce four intellectual outputs:
- a survey to research teachers’ knowledge, skills and attitudes related to DCE, which will later be turned into a tool for teachers’ professional self-reflection,
- a comprehensive set of open educational resources available in English and additional European languages,
- a teacher training package for DCE in FLE providing various scalable opportunities for professional development,
- a new policy framework serving to guide adaptable implementations of DCE in FLE in local and national educational contexts across Europe.
