How might strategic language requirements and higher education interests
converge? Should higher education be concerned about the shortages of
multi-lingual speakers? Who sets the standards and where should the
funding come from? If our K-12 students do not learn the value of a
second language, can we expect them to embrace language learning later
in life? Does a national language policy make sense? Where does
technology fit in language acquisition programs? What new technologies
can we look forward to? 

Produced in cooperation with the Digital Stream Conference & CSU
Monterey Bay. Target Audience: K-12 & higher education, language
teaching faculty, political science faculty, government agencies &
nonprofit organizations.
