Two new press releases regarding the first triannual monitoring meeting of
SEAH Erasmus+ Project have been disseminated on the Institutional websites of the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures of the University of D'Annunzio.
Another important milestone archieved by this two-year project aimed at encouraging Architecture and Construction student mobility in Europe.
Here you can find the news:
On 15th February 2021 SEAH consortium took part in the first triannual monitoring meeting, after the kick-off meeting held in October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting has been realised in online mode on the basis of an agenda developed and shared jointly by all partners. The agenda was scheduled also in line with a questionnaire circulated and filled in by each organization before the online conference.
UdA team, as coordinator, welcomed participants and facilitated all the session. The first part of the meeting has been devoted to administrative and communication issues. In particular, they focused on the importance of an incisive and efficient dissemination strategy in order to unify partner’s efforts and boost project’s visibility.
Internet Web Solutions, the IT partner from Spain, presented the state of art of the Open Educational Resources platform that is already online at https://www.seahproject.eu/.
The second part of the meeting has been devoted to Intellectual Output 1 and each Institution was required to briefly present and share proposals for corpus compilation. Significant steps forward has been taken for the development of language corpora (big databanks) to be loaded on the platform in order to reflect how language is actually used by academics and professionals in the field of Architecture and Construction (AC). The project aims at creating academic-professional language modules for French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish as a foreign language in the field of Architecture and Construction with a view to encourage student mobility and to improve the outcomes of mobility programs.
SEAH is a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission which involves a Consortium of 6 Partners from 5 countries (Italy, France, Czech Republic, Belarus and Spain).
SEAH-Project platforms’ greatest innovation is that at present there are no OER platforms solely dedicated to multilingual teaching tools in the field of Architecture and Construction tailored on the users needs (in structuring the platform, developing the content, ensuring relevance in terms of access, usability and impact).
The meeting was attended by partners of the four European universities involved in the project (Université Bordeaux Montaigne, Masarykova-Univerzita, Polotsk State University, UniversidadPolitécnica de Madrid), as well as by the UdA team as project coordinator.
During the meeting, the consortium discussed how to build large language databases to create online language courses (in Italian, Russian, Spanish, French and German) for Erasmus architecture students.
Thanks to those step, partners will be able to develop learning materials, allowing new generations of students to embark on their Erasmus adventure without fear of language barriers!
SEAH... ready... go!
On 23 October 2020 SEAH, the co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme (Action KA203) project, written and managed by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with 5 European partners, kicked off.
The name SEAH stands for Sharing European Architectural Heritage: innovative language teaching tools for academic and professional mobility in Architecture and Construction. The main objective of the project is to create online language courses (in Italian, Russian, Spanish, French and German) addressed to Erasmus students of architecture.
UdA is the project leader, with scientific head Prof. Mariapia D'Angelo of the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, assisted by colleagues Prof. Maria Chiara Ferro and Prof. Sara Piccioni.
The project management is entrusted to Glauco Conte and Francesca Vinci of the International Partnership and Cooperation Sector.
Four European Universities and one technological partner participate in the project:
Université Bordeaux Montaigne (France)
Masarykova Univerzita (Czech Republic)
Polotsk State University (Belarus)
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain)
Internet Web Solutions (Spain)
