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, maintains, updates, and coordinates the curriculum for first and second year Italian courses. 

Current projects involve a 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. 

Areas of interest / expertise:
Analog Game-Based Learning, Italian Film, Italian Language and Culture, Second Language Acquisition, Teaching Pedagogy, XX and XXI century Italian Literature
