Biography

Dr. Francesca Nicora is Lecturer Below The Bar in Italian, at the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, at the University of Galway. She is currently the Coordinator of the Diploma in Italian Online and the Head of the second year of the BA degree programme in Italian. She holds the role of HEI Outreach Officer (School of LLC) and she acts as a liaison with the Languages Connect.

Dr. Francesca Nicora holds a BA in Foreign Languages and Literatures (Bulgarian and Russian) and a MA in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics from University of Pisa, Italy; a MA in E-Learning and e-teaching Italian as a foreign language from Università per Stranieri di Siena, Italy. During her studies, she spent extended periods abroad at Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, and at Sofia University St Kliment Ohridski, Bulgaria (Slavistics - full year Erasmus).

Dr. Nicora received her Ph.D. in Italian Studies from the University of Galway, with a thesis entitled 'Prosodic training in foreign language: A study with Hiberno-English learners of Italian', which was selected as the winner of the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics (IRAAL) postgraduate award in November 2019, the European Doctorate Award (University of Galway) in April 2020, and the Grant-in-Aid of Publication fund in January 2021 (Moore Institute, University of Galway). She also completed a postgraduate certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education from the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) at the University of Galway.

In 2017 and 2018, as a visiting researcher at the Centro di Ricerca Interdisciplinare sul Linguaggio (CRIL- Università del Salento, Lecce, Italy), she carried out data analysis of the intonational features of La Spezia Italian and Galway Irish-English, under the supervision of Professor Barbara Gili Fivela. This research experience allowed her to gain skills in the application of methods and tools for analysing the phonology of intonation within the Autosegmental Metrical (AM) framework with reference to the Tone and Break Indices (ToBI) system.

In 2021, she was the recipient of the Japan Society for the Promotion of  Science (JSPS) Postdoctoral Fellowship, with a project entitled 'Prosody and language learning in Japan: regional linguistic profiles in the spotlight'. She completed the first six months of the project at Kobe University under the supervision of Professor Ryoko Hayashi prior to joining the University of Galway. 

She has held academic appointments in Ireland, Italy, and Japan.

Her educational background and career have consistently reflected the interdisciplinary nature of her work in the fields of linguistics and applied linguistics across areas of research that span from speech prosody, intonational phonology, corpus linguistics, second language acquisition (SLA) and pedagogy, e-learning and e-teaching, open educational resources (OERs) for language education, language teacher education to audiovisual translation (AVT) in language learning and teaching.

Dr. Nicora has presented her findings and been invited to give seminars, lectures, oral presentations (including posters) at over 40 national and international conferences around the world, including Ireland, UK, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Canada and Japan. She has published several articles in peer-reviewed journals and books, mostly as first author. Recent articles include: The corpus of Irish English speech (IES). TEANGA, the Journal of the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics (2022a); Moving online: Zoom and audiovisual translation tasks to teach foreign languages to children. In Adams Heather Mary, & Díaz-Cintas Jorge (Eds.) Audiovisual Translation in the Foreign Language Classroom [Special Issue] (2022b).

Dr. Nicora has been recipient of fellowships, grants and awards from University of Galway, Moore Institute (University of Galway), Hardiman Library (University of Galway), Post Primary Ireland Languages (PPLI), Languages Connect, Irish Association for Applied Linguistics (IRAAL), Japan Society for the Promotion for Science (JSPS), Italian Association for Applied Linguistics (AItLA), Italian Association for Speech Science (AISV), The Italian ministry for Education, University and Research (MIUR), the ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Bulgaria.

2021 MISTRAL Project
Dr. Francesca Nicora is the PI of the MISTRAL project (winner of the Open Educational Resources grant and funded by Hardiman Library, University of Galway), aims to maximise students¿ success in online language learning by creating an open book that supports them to develop appropriate strategies and skills in order to become successful online learners. MISTRAL takes its name from the cold wind which blows strongly into the northern Mediterranean sea. Similarly, this project will promote a fresh and innovative perspective on e-learning by enhancing students¿ active participation, motivation and engagement in learning foreign languages online.

2021 MARIN Project
Lead/Author for the MARIN project:
The MARIN - Maximising teachers¿ success in teaching foreign languages online - initiative comes from the lack of specific training in online language teaching and it proposes the creation of an open book designed to assist teacher trainers and language teachers in the transition from face-to-face teaching environments to e-teaching environments. MARIN aims at maximising teachers¿ success in teaching foreign languages online. More specifically, it will help teacher trainers to cope with new digital challenges and train language teachers to respond to the rapidly changing e-learning environment. MARIN takes its name from the warm and humid wind which blows gently onshore from the Mediterranean sea creating fine and pleasant weather. Similarly, this project will foster teachers¿ psychophysical wellbeing by providing them with all the necessary tools and skills to build up their e-teaching confidence and create a warm and pleasant e-learning environment.

2019-2021 LILAC Project
PI: Professor Laura Incalcaterra McLoughlin
Research Assistants: Dr. Francesca Nicora, Oriana Bologna
funded by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning


The T&L initiative relates to the teaching of languages online. It proposes the creation of Open Educational Resources designed to assist teacher trainers, language teachers and students in the transition from the traditional face-to-face to the online environment (https://www.lilac-project.com/) 
Aims to:
  • Train language teachers and trainers to transform new digital challenges into opportunities and provide a model for structuring, delivering and assessing e-learning language courses.
  • Provide language students with the digital proficiency necessary to participate in and maximise the benefits of eLearning.
  • Create and offer an online module to train teachers to teach online and to introduce students to online language learning.
Dr. Nicora was responsible for content creation, web design, data analysis and dissemination activities. https://opencourses.ie/opencourse/lilac-online-language-learning-and-teaching/

2020-2021 Tra-balliamo Project: Italian for Secondary Schools
PI/Coordinator: Prof Laura Incalcaterra McLoughlin
Researchers and teachers: Michela Dianetti, Dr. Francesca Nicora
funded by the Department of Education - Post-Primary Language Initiative (PPLI)
This project aims to embed language into performing arts experiences thus encouraging TY students to expand their imagination, find joy in self-expression and promote psychological wellbeing. (https://traballiamo.wordpress.com/).

Since 2017 on-going: Didactic Audiovisual Translation (DAT)
This research project consists of a series of experimental studies on the acquisition of Italian as a foreign language, with the purpose of investigating the potential of audiovisual translation tasks (such as subtitling, free commentary and dubbing) in the foreign language classroom. It involves the design, the creation and the implementation of innovative DAT-focused language courses tailored to the needs of students of different ages: young people (children) and university students (young adults and adults).The aim of this study is twofold: (1) to demonstrate the potential of DAT tasks for the development of language and intercultural competences in second language acquisition as well as of transferable skills (e.g., prosodic, lexical, creative, ICT and digital skills); (2) to collect and analyse students¿ responses to the use of audiovisual translation in the acquisition of Italian as a foreign language.

Learning and Teaching Languages Online

Since 2014, Dr. Francesca Nicora has been teaching Italian as a foreign language at the University of Galway to students of all years, at all levels and of different age groups (children, young adults and adults). She has also actively contributed to the evening diploma and online diploma courses in Italian. She has delivered a total of 45 modules to date.

She has a very strong interest in the prosodic aspects of speech and during my doctoral studies, she designed a new didactic experience on the use of intonation patterns in the Italian language by integrating computer tools and the speech visualisation software called PRAAT into teaching practice. In addition, she is very involved in exploring cutting-edge software and designing audiovisual translation activities and modules in both online and blended learning environments. Of particular note is the course she developed on 'Combining captioning and revoicing activities to teach Italian as a foreign language to children' (Youth Academy, University of Galway), which has been shortlisted for the European Language Label for Innovation and Creativity (Leargas) in 2019.

As a researcher, content creator and web developer for the LILAC project, she has extensive experience in creating Open Educational Resources (OERs) by using WordPress software, H5p and innovative educational tools, such as Canva for Education, Genially and Mentimeter.

She designed and developed the course 'Traballiamo: Italian for Secondary Schools' to promote Italian language and culture in County and City of Galway.

She has volunteered teaching Italian and running Italian workshops in various primary and secondary schools in Galway City and County:
Our Lady s College; Dominican College Taylor s Hill; St. Enda s College; Colaiste Na Coiribe; Clarin College (Athenry, Co. Galway); St. Brigid s College (Loughrea, Co. Galway); Scoil Iognáid, Galway; Oranmore Boys NS (Oranmore, Co. Galway).

She designed short 'taster' courses and workshops for Transition Year (TY) students and supervised a team of language assistants by planning the necessary training sessions. She also promoted Italian language and culture in Galway and the west of Ireland by organising events for the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures:

Italian Food Culture meets the Atlantic Way 7th of April 2016
Italian Day 16th of March 2018
#ThinkLanguages Day 1st of December 2023

She was the Didactic Coordinator of the first edition of the Italian Summer Camp (August 2023) in Ireland, funded by Languages Connect and organised by the University of Galway [Italian Discipline].

Since January 2024, within the context of the Master "E-Learning per l'insegnamento dell'italiano a stranieri" (Master ELIIAS), Università per Stranieri di Siena (Italy), she has been teaching the module Metodi di progettazione del percorso di apprendimento linguistico online and conducting seminars as part of the Area 2 Laboratory Progettazione e produzione di percorsi di apprendimento online.
