Event Details

Italian Language and Culture Conference: Innovation in Italian Programs and Pedagogy

Georgetown University, Washington D.C.

Saturday October 21st, 2017 (8:00 A.M. - 7:00 P.M.)

Keynote Speaker: Giuseppe Cavatorta, University of Arizona

The ability to innovate has always been a fundamental trait of the Italian spirit characterizing the work of Italians in many domains, from the arts, to design, to cuisine. In recent years, Italian departments, researchers, and teachers have had to find innovative ways to confront the challenges brought about by changes in higher education and the general shift in students’ interests. This will be the main focus of the 2017 Italian Language and Culture Conference organized by the Department of Italian at Georgetown University as part of a series of events celebrating Italian Language Week in Washington D.C.  The conference will provide a venue for educators to share innovative approaches and pedagogical strategies that have been successfully tested and adopted at both a course and program level in the high school and college classroom.
