The Department of Modern and Classical Languages hosted the Ozarks Foreign Language Association (OFLA) meeting and the Missouri Modern Languages and Modern Technologies (MO3) Conference in late spring on the campus of Missouri State University.
The OFLA meeting brought together K-12 world language educators from around the region to share ideas on advocacy, classroom activities and other initiatives. Presentation topics ranged from student motivation to authentic materials and a round or two of boules on the grass in front of Carrington Hall.
The MO3 Conference, hosted for the first time by MCL, focused on technology use and influence in language education, at both the K-12 and university levels. Educators from across the state and Midwest region met and exchanged ideas and techniques about integrating technology into their language courses in pedagogically-sound ways.
MCL will host the regional meeting of the Foreign Language Association of Missouri (FLAM) on October 5, 2013. For more information about the event, please contact Dr. Tonia Tinsley at TETinsley@missouristate.edu.
