Camilla Zamboni

Camilla Zamboni's work centers on innovative pedagogy, particularly related to language learning, open educational resources (OERs), and gameful L2TL / analog game-based learning. She is the coordinator of the Italian language program at Wesleyan: she creates, updates, and coordinates the curriculum for first and second year Italian courses. 

Over the past year, she has been coordinating the Wesleyan Language Collective with the Fries Center for Global Studies. This collaborative aims to raise awareness of the benefits of language learning and to promote the study of different languages and cultures. 

Current projects involve the Italian Board Gaming Lab, born out of the successful “Italian Board Game Nights” at Wesleyan, and a language learning tabletop RPG, Mistero, which was made possible by a grant of the Center for Pedagogical Innovation at Wesleyan. Other ongoing projects are Assaggi, a complete Intermediate Italian curriculum in OER form used for second year courses at Wesleyan; WeScrive, a magazine in Italian written and edited by Wesleyan students; and Italian at Wesleyan, a Facebook group dedicated to the Italian community on and off campus.
