On Saturday, April 9, the Department of Modern Languages at the University of Northern Iowa will welcome teachers of languages to our campus for two important events.

Saturday afternoon we will reconvene with administrators, school board members, and legislators from throughout the state for a colloquium regarding the state of language education in K-12 schools. This event will feature afternoon sessions that discuss issues facing the profession from multiple perspectives. The day's discussions will conclude with dinner featuring a keynote address by Mr. Paul Sandrock, World Language Education Consultant for the Department of Public Instruction of Wisconsin. These two events focusing on the practice of teaching and the future of our profession are intertwined. We hope that you will join us for all of the day's events!

Both events are free, as well as the lunch.  There is a $10 fee for the dinner.  Please send questions and RSVP to by April 1, 2011, to secure meals.
