Innovation in Italian Programs and Pedagogy

Date:

Innovation in Italian Programs and Pedagogy

17TH ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK IN THE WORLD
Under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic

 

Join us on October 21, at Georgetown University, for the third iteration of the Italian Language and Culture Conference which this year focuses the discussion on pedagogical innovations to increase enrollments in the Italian classroom.

The Keynote Speaker will be **Giuseppe Cavatorta** from the University of Arizona, and the conference will feature guest speakers from the US and Italy.

The ability to innovate has always been a fundamental trait of the Italian spirit characterizing the work of Italians in many domains, from the arts, to design, to cuisine. In recent years, Italian departments, researchers, and teachers have had to find innovative ways to confront the challenges brought about by changes in higher education and the general shift in students' interests.

This event is sponsored by the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics at Georgetown University, the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in Washington DC. Professional development credits will be awarded to K-12 educators in attendance.
