14th Annual NCOLCTL Conference Focused on Collaboration, Innovation, and Globalization

The National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages (NCOLCTL) held its 14th annual conference titled “Building Language Capacity: Collaboration, Innovation, Globalization” in Madison, April 7-10, 2011.

Dean and Vice Provost Gilles Bousquet joined researchers and practitioners top give opening remarks.

He noted that hosting the conference gives UW-Madison an opportunity to showcase the importance of language teaching and learning for today’s globalized world. The  less commonly taught languages, he said, constantly bring new ideas and energy to our campus.

As a long-time major sponsor, the Division of International Studies was awarded a commemorative plaque by President Catherine Ingold on behalf of NCOLCTL.
