All films will be followed by Q&A sessions with the directors or interactive panel discussions with MSU faculty, graduate students and community leaders. Keep updated on festival news by connecting with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram through our website: msulatinxfilmfestival.com

Mind the Gap: Bridging the Researcher-Teacher Divide @ Wells Hall, B-Wing
Apr 13 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

This mini-conference event brings researchers and teachers together in dialogue around the questions “Do teachers care about research?” and “Do researchers care about teachers?” Plenary session presentations by researcher Dr. Masatoshi Sato (Universidad Andrés Bello, Chile) and a language educator (TBD) will be followed by a mixer in smaller break-out rooms, where language researchers and language teachers will engage in guided but informal dialogue. The event will conclude with a Town Hall-style forum, facilitated by MSU’s Second Language Studies program chair, Dr. Shawn Loewen.
