The 6th annual Language Educator Symposium focuses on the development of intercultural competence within and through language education. Co-sponsored by Penn Language Center and the Educational Linguistics Division, this symposium offers language teachers a hands-on opportunity to explore what taking an intercultural perspective entails and how they might design classroom experiences that foster intercultural competence within themselves and their students. A keynote talk by Dr. Anthony J. Liddicoat, a renowned leader in the field of intercultural teaching and learning, will be followed by six interactive workshops that focus on specific classroom practices that support the development of intercultural competence.
