Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

  • Teaching Medicine and French Health through French Apps and Websites (Meyer)
    The presenter will share strategies for integrating Medical and health French through the use of authentic French apps and websites. The handout shares useful apps and websites that teachers might consider using in their own language and / or French for Specific Purposes courses.
  • Teaching Medicine and the French Health Care System through Cinema (Daniélou)
    We will focus on how recent films reflect on the ways French society, economics, and evolving demographics are changing health care delivery in contemporary France. The handout will share ideas for presenting a French for Specific Purposes course within a social science context and a list of films to study in class.
  • Professional French Studies and Advocating for French in the Real World (Deitz)
    The presenter will show how two separate cohorts doing the same master’s degree in professional French studies interact in a required graduate-level course on Social Responsibility in the French-Speaking Workplace. The full-time cohort in that class is preparing for jobs in business, international development, international education, and the arts, while the part-time cohort in the same class is made up of working French teachers at the K-12 level. We will focus specifically on how these interactions help the teachers’ cohort advocate more effectively in their working lives for the study of French in American schools.
