The Internationalization Project implemented at the University of Urbino, Italy, aims to promote multilingualism and student mobility in higher education. To achieve these objectives, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) courses have been developed. A CLIL Center has been established to provide instructors with methodological and linguistic support. The consultation services provided by experts are geared to help instructors in lesson planning, materials design, and lesson delivery. To scaffold learners’ content knowledge and foreign language acquisition, a CLIL blended learning model has been developed. Overall, CLIL technology-enhanced teaching has been implemented in higher education to cater to digital-age learners and to create a state-of-the-art learning environment leading to the development of global workers and citizens.
