Celebrating Foreign Language Education: A Monterey Bay Symposium
Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
The 2nd Annual Celebrating Foreign Language Education: A Monterey Bay Symposium will bring together teachers from throughout the Monterey Bay area, strengthening the connection between MIIS and the local community. We are honored to have Dr. Peter DeCosta as our opening keynote speaker. We have also invited speakers from local institutions such as Stevenson School and the Defense Language Institute. The symposium will directly provide academic and professional support to students in the TESOL and TFL programs at MIIS, allowing them to share ideas with local teachers, bringing their learning outside the classroom and into real-world practical applications.
