On April 5, 2013, SUNY Global and the Office of the Provost, with the support of the University Faculty Senate, will hold an all day workshop entitled SUNY Language PACT: Building Community to Strengthen Language Learning.
This event continues a dialogue about modern language education that was initiated by last year’s workshop, SUNY-MLA Collaboration for Language and Culture Education: Exploring New Structures for a Changing World. Four issues were identified that are central considerations as we seek to enrich teaching and learning of languages at SUNY. The SUNY Language PACT (Pipeline-Access-Culture-Technology) initiative seeks to address each of the four concepts. We hope the workshop will provide an opportunity to continue our dialogue on fostering collaboration among and across language programs, increasing student access to language study, and making the most effective use of SUNY’s vast language offerings, faculty expertise, and technology to enhance opportunities for students.
