ESL and International Programs to host virtual symposium on language learning Feb. 26

Please join University of Iowa ESL Programs and UI International Programs for a virtual symposium “Language Lessons Near and Far: Students and Teachers Adapt to a Changing World.”

This event is free and open to the public and will take place from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Friday, February 26, 2021, via Zoom.

The teaching and learning of languages and cultural competencies have always been of critical importance in order to equip ourselves and our students to move through and interact with the world in adaptive, meaningful ways. In this symposium, educational and exchange partners share how emerging and continuing challenges and opportunities have presented themselves and been met, especially in a time of increasing societal focus on social and racial justice and growing chasms in geopolitical relationships.
