The 42nd annual IUP Spring Methodology Conference On Foreign Language Teaching took place on Friday, April 21, 2017, at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex. It was well-received by the more than 120 attendees.
speaker, Dr. Bonnie Adair-Hauck, along with accomplished presenters such
as Richard Donato, made for a enjoyable and educational conference.
Presenters from many local school districts offered insightful ideas for
the classroom, with the use of Integrated Performance Assessment (IPA) taking a
prominent presence in this year’s conference, along with “flipping
classrooms” and the inclusion of culture at all levels of language teaching. We
hope that next year’s conference will be equally successful, and the committee
is already hard at work preparing for it.
