Innovation in Language Education. Conference

Too often in these days, words like "humanities" and "languages" are associated with the word "crisis." Yet, it is by looking at innovation in the field of education that we can identify new paths to attach renewed meaning to these disciplines. Such innovation rests on synergies across education levels, disciplines, and public and private entities

Join us on Thur Nov. 15 at 4pm for a roundtable of educators, representatives of organizations and governmental offices, as well as students, to learn about new summer projects launched two years ago in Italian in order to respond to the current challenges -- an intensive course for high school students on campus and two internships (in Business and Translation) with an international component. We are truly pleased that MLA (Modern Languages Association) Executive Director, Paula Krebs, will give the introductory speech to place these efforts in the larger context of innovative initiatives in education. 

Even if you will not be able to attend, please submit in advance questions and observations at (these contributions to the conversation are being posted on a dedicated page).
