Workshop 5: Why is Interculturality at the Heart of Learning Languages?
Presenter: Janet Parker, the College of William and Mary, Foreign Language Supervisor to undergraduate and graduate students in the world language cohort.
The Foreign Language Teachers Workshop Series (FLTWS) continues across the Commonwealth in an effort to provide useful, professional development opportunities to as many Virginia world language educators as possible. The FLTWS is partnered with the Foreign Language Association of Virginia (FLAVA) through its Professional Development Network (PDN).
As is always the case, the FLAVA/FLTWS workshops can be used for receiving points toward K-12 teacher certification renewal at the discretion of the local school division with the presentation of the certificates, which participants receive after each workshop.
These workshops are free of charge, open to members and non-members. Registration for the workshops will begin October 1st.
All workshops originate at Washington and Lee University (W&L) in Lexington, Virginia, and are broadcasted live via the Internet to numerous host schools and divisions across the state. These locations are known as FLAVA/FLTWS workshop host sites. Each host site has a volunteer instructor who is a logistical coordinator and is an extension to the workshop leader at the broadcast location.
