Dec 1 all-day
MSU 2021 Learning Abroad Conference Webinar Series - Call for Proposals!

We are now accepting student and alumni proposals to the MSU Learning Abroad Conference Webinar Series, which will take place during spring semester 2021!

The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, December 1st.

In lieu of our traditional in-person MSU Learning Abroad Conference (LAC) that normally takes place each November, the Office for Education Abroad will be scheduling a series of webinars for spring 2021.  Similar to our normal face-to-face student panel presentations, each webinar will consist of student and alumni presentations where the presenters will showcase their education abroad experiences.

Co-sponsored by the Office for Education Abroad and the Office for International Students and Scholars, the Annual MSU Learning Abroad Conference (LAC) features presentations from students returned from international learning experiences and international students currently studying abroad here in East Lansing.  Since its inception in 2012, over 300 students have presented at the annual conference.  Domestic and International students from all academic levels—first year undergraduates to doctoral students—and a variety of academic disciplines have participated.  They have utilized the LAC as an opportunity to share their education abroad experiences with fellow students, family, friends, and the greater MSU community.  Presentations include a variety of formats such as poetry, journal entries, music compositions, video, and more.

MSU has organized a series of three workshops in FS20 and a MSU Faculty Roundtable in SS21 on the

each workshop. Each workshop will be three hours long (1.5 hours for non-language specific audiences
and 1.5 hours for target language audiences). The non-language specific workshop will be organized
around four key issues: (1) Navigating the paths to becoming a professional; (2) Scoping the field and its
future; (3) Learning strategies and methodologies for translation and interpretation; and (4) Identifying
resources for the profession. The language specific workshop will be a hands-on workshop focusing
mainly on strategies and methodologies for translation and interpretation.
