Expertise in the topic of this project

Practice in the field 
My work in very diverse fields enabled me to gain different perspectives concerning didactic / methododological questions of teaching German (German as L1, German as a second language / foreign language) and of teaching foreign languages ( Italian as L2 or L3) and to develop teaching and learning materials for these areas of teaching.One main focus has always been to see language learning as learning about a new culture and  how to integrate the following keyaspects in the process of learning: enhancing plurilingualism, the interest in learning further languages, intercultural competences.
Other relevant experience

Key competence through long term erxperience as trainer, teacher and organizer of international in-service training for trainers and adult learners: planning, organization and evaluation of seminars, project management and conflict management , methodology and didactics (languages), working with radio as a diverse lerning space, dissemination of  final results, support in building up networks, social learning and intercultural learning, development of curricula and new teaching/learning materials.
