University of Turin, Politecnico di Torino and Accademia Albertina have adhered to the Turin Pride 2024. This year, the parade will take place on Saturday 15th June. The slogan “Amore e Lotta” (Love and Fight) aims at exploring and celebrating the richness and complexity of human relationships, outside of any standard and rule.

The event announces itself as an “intersectional” and “fierce” pride, aimed at bravely facing the issues of equality, acknowledgment, and rights. The parade will start at 16:30 from Via Principe Eugenio / Corso San Martino cornerand the route’s details will be soon announced by the Coordinamento Torino Pride association.

Turin Pride 2024 not only represents a moment of celebration and visibility, but also is a further confirmation of the Coordinamento’s continuous commitment in formation, awareness, and civic action, aimed at building a more equal and inclusive society for everybody.

Coordinamento Torino Pride has been active since 2006 and represents a vital network of associations committed to promoting rights and awareness of LGBTIQ+ community and allies. Besides organizing significant events such as the Turin Pride, the association also plays a key role in education and formation regarding LGBTIQ+ issues, joining forces with the City of Turin’s LGBT service and other institutions.

Over the last few years, Coordinamento Torino Pride has also distinguished itself for its activism in civic context, actively participating in the debate on social policies and for criticizing such laws that risk to further marginalize LGBTIQ+ couples and families. The voices of Luca Minici and Margherita Anna Jannon, major members of the Coordinamento, have been crucial in promoting an inclusive and respectful dialog about every familiar reality.

On 4th April at 12:30, the new Bar Michelangelo, in the Via Buonarroti 17 bis study hall in Turin, was inaugurated. It was opened by Edisu Piemonte and will be run by students from the second to the fifth year of Istituto Alberghiero J. B. Beccari.

This new café results from the rehabilitation of a disused area inside the study hall, which allowed to create a 190 m2 large space that includes the customers area, storage, cooking, and food preparation area, as well as a new entrance and reception.

From 9 to 15 the Bar Michelangelo will offer cafeteria, snack bar, hot and cold food service. Access is limited to study hall users with the latest version of the “Campus Piemonte Id Meal” app, which is mandatory for all canteens and Edisu Piemonte affiliated facilities from 2nd April.

In March 2024, the new EMI@CLAUnito training project, targeted to professors of Degree Courses taught in English, got started. This activity is part of the initiatives framework put in place by the University of Turin to increase its presence on the international scene (Goal 2.3 of the Strategic Plan 2021-2026), also enhancing Degree Courses taught in a foreign language and the attractiveness for international students. In the 26 Degree Courses taught in English, students and professors are the protagonists in the making of an open University, oriented to a transnational and strongly intercultural dimension. This kind of educational activity requires that professors develop new teaching methods and establishes a new training necessity. The EMI@CLAUnito aims at meeting this very needs.

This project is the result of the collaboration between the University Language Center (CLA-UNITO) and the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Modern Cultures and it was started and coordinated by the Area Internazionalizzazione, together with the Teaching and Learning Center. It represents an important development opportunity for professors who teach in English. This training intervention aims at highlighting the importance of integrating linguistic, didactics and intercultural aspects when teaching in English. The project combines CLA-UNITO’s experience with the results of EMI (English-medium Instruction) research, especially in the framework of the EMILC project (EMI Lecturer Certification: New horizons for quality assurance and capacity building). Activity is coordinated by Prof.ssa Alessandra Molino, in collaboration with University’s EMI experts, supported by external collaborators.

The project is structured in 6 meetings of 3 hours each, resulting in 18 hours. The training path focuses on a critical analysis of EMI, in order to strengthen the teaching methods, especially in international classes. Special attention is paid to the improvement of English linguistic competence applied to teaching, and to the strategies aimed to support education and effective intercultural communication. The project takes into consideration the specific features of different subject areas and contexts, promoting autonomy in the continuous professional development. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to receive an individual feedback on their teaching methods through mock lesson sessions. Acquired competences will be certified by an Open Badge from CLA-UNITO.

4 training cycles are scheduled in 2024, especially targeted to UniTo professors who have not yet participated in training projects held in English.

There will be no additional exam session in June to catch up on the time lost due to Covid-19. Constitutional Affairs and Budget Committees denied the amendment which demanded an extension of the 2022/2023 academic year until 15th June. Such extension was aimed at giving more time to about-to-graduate students whose university career was affected by Covid-19, introducing an additional exam session from 15th June without having to pay university taxes during a whole year.
