SWISSLING is a joint project with the major objective to develop an
introductory course in linguistics targeted to university beginners in
human sciences (linguistics; communication sciences; literature and
languages). SWISSLING consortium is composed by a network of five Swiss
linguistics departments - Lugano (USI), Basel, Geneva, Lausanne, and
Zürich. It produced 12 courseware modules covering all the main
subfields of the discipline that can be combined to form introductory
courses in linguistics adapted to various teaching needs and usable
both within blended learning scenarios and in complete distance
I was responsible for the technical aspects of the project in SUPSI. In
particular, my tasks were the installation of the software platforms
(WebCT and BlackBoard),
organisation of tutorials to learn the use of the platforms, assistance
course implementation, and technical maintenance. The experience I
acquired with this project was crucial for the definition of the
research questions in my Ph.D. work.
