The Foreign Language Program Office (FLPO) of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the National Cryptologic School (NCS), and The University of Texas at Austin are pleased to announce a Special LEARN (Language Education and Resource Network) Workshop to be held Monday, 24 September – Thursday, 27 September, 2012, on the UT-Austin campus. The LEARN workshops provide language instructors and course developers from U.S. government-affiliated schools and institutions with a venue for information sharing and collaboration on foreign language instruction with their colleagues.
This Special LEARN Workshop is open to instructors and course developers of all languages from any USG–affiliated institution. As the theme suggests, the workshop is focused on issues of training, maintaining and enhancing the language skills and proficiency levels of USG and U.S. military language professionals, as well as on methods, technologies and resources that could empower them, as independent adult learners, to continue their professional development on their own.
