Language in Motion Northwest Conference

    July 18, 2013 (Thursday)

    8:30 am - 3:00 pm
    At Willamette University, Alumni Lounge (in the Putnam University Center)

    Join us for the Language in Motion Northwest Conference - Bringing rich language and cultural experiences to K-12 classrooms!*

    Language in Motion NW (LiM) is a collaborative program connecting collegiate study abroad returners and international students with K - 12 students.  The program provides local classrooms with unique, experience-based perspectives on countries and cultures, as well as specific interactive activities that promote the cultivation of new passions, careful analysis of real-world issues and an intuitive understanding of the many values of intercultural learning.

    The conference will focus on research, issues of practice and strategies for engaging students in language and culture in the classroom.

    All teachers and administrators welcome!

    PDUs and workshop credit (one semester hour) available from Willamette University Graduate School of Education.  (The credit will require an additional payment of $125.  More info will be available about earning the credit at the conference.)

    *Funded by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, with support from Willamette university and the Oregon Writing Project.
