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 on campus course for high school students 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.
Once again, Italian functions as a use case to illustrate projects that can be adopted in many different directions as part of collaborations. While geared towards people active in the humanities to address issues of enrollment, retention, outreach, and employment opportunities, the program aims at reaching a broad and mixed audience since education is at the core of any social and economic endeavor.
RSVP Required By Nov. 13th
