PACE Intercultural Competence Conference & Virtual Presentations

The PACE Project and CARLA hosted two days of live streams between January 22 - 23, 2016 of the Intercultural Competence Conference, presented by CERCLL (a Language Resource Center similar to CARLA), at the University of Arizona. Open to all CLA language instructors, the livestream provided the keynote, plenary, and various breakout sessions of the conference.

Day one of the event started off with breakout sessions that led into the Keynote session, Intercultural Competence Beyond Orthodoxies, given by Fred Dervin of the University of Helsinki. Day two kicked off with the Plenary Presentation by Paige Ware of Southern Methodist University, titled: Intercultural Competence Inside Digital Contact Zones: Spaces of Reification, Negotiation, and Suspense, followed by breakout sessions.

The Language Center and CARLA had previously planned to air the virtual sessions associated with the conference weekly between February and April in Jones 117. However, CERCLL has graciously put all these virtual sessions online and made them accessible to everyone. The conference website now has all virtual session content available, and so the scheduled airings in Jones 117 are canceled.

The PACE Project is funded by a grant from The Language Flagship.
