Connections Between Universities:  Communication, Collaboration and Innovation
Department chairs from throughout Missouri address in a panel discussion of the changing landscape of the university foreign language department and ongoing challenges faced by liberal arts disciplines. Issues to be treated include advocacy for languages, the continued decline in state funding, and collaboration with secondary educators.  This session provides a unique forum for the exchange of information and ideas among university and secondary educators as we seek to strengthen the profession and provide opportunities for students.

Enhancing the Foreign Language Curriculum Through Translation
Learn practical strategies for starting successful programs in translation. Address the needs of students who are mostly interested in functional language opportunities, not exactly in literary texts.By attending this session, all participants will acquire materials to aid in the creation of their own programs, whether as a minor, an area of concentration, a module or a certificate. As we become more and more global, translation services will be even more critical in the medical, legal, technical and business fields all over the world.
