An Italian mid-size State university located in Viterbo (Lazio), 'La Tuscia' offers BA and MA degrees in Agrarian Studies, Natural Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Humanities and Communication Sciences. In particular DISUCOM, the Department involved in L2LByTe2, includes courses in Italian Language and Literature, Comparative Literatures, Foreign languages, cultures and literatures, Geography, Language Teaching Theory beyond courses in General Linguistics, History, Communication Sciences, History of Arts, Digital Humanities. Many of its lecturers are engaged in teacher training for the Humanities and the Foreign Languages and have strengthened cooperation with the local school net where trainees attend part of their education. Adult education, life-long learning, and professional updating are also promoted both through participation in European projects (Comenius and Grundtvig) and with different initiatives based on blended or totally on-line teaching. The implementation of a personalized moodle platform (UniTusMoodle) to these purposes has triggered off research in teaching/learning methodologies through ICT, has allowed massive testing and the creation of digital teaching materials and has implied dedicated staff training. UniTusMoodle was chosen by MIUR as the hosting platform for all the activities of the project “E-CLIL: per una didattica digitale” (in the years 2011-12), an experimental project anticipating the enforcement of CLIL teachers’ education in the following years in Italy, which will also help processes of internalization inside the university itself.
