Subject matter

This seminar is divided into 4 modules that provide evidence of the linkage of FLE/S didactics, on the one hand, with the literature and, on the other hand, with the linguistic.
Module 1: historical perspective of the teaching of the FLE/S in its relationship with the literature / approaching the question of literary diversity through authors from French speaking countries or regions or that not having the French as L1 have decided to adopt it in their works.
Module 2: Processes and issues related to the transmediation of a literary text to another medium and/or artistic expression / mechanisms of transposition of LT for another language.
Module 3: Teaching French for specific purposes - study and theorization of various issues / analysis of the strategies to be adopted to improve French teaching in this context.
Module 4: ICT in French teaching - flipped classroom, data-driven learning, face-to-face teaching vs distance teaching / analysis of concrete didactic proposals.
