On June 4-5, 2014, SUNY Global and the Office of the Provost, with the support of the University Faculty Senate, will hold a conference and workshop entitled SUNY Language PACT:  The World and the Classroom. This will mark the 3rd annual event held by the SUNY Language PACT, whose mission is to foster collaboration among and across language programs. The SUNY Language PACT aims to increase student access to language study by making the most effective use of SUNY’s vast language offerings, faculty expertise, and technology. This year’s program will include topical presentations and workshops in addition to two keynotes, one by Sabine Levet of MIT representing institutions of higher education and Candace Black of Eastridge High School, First Vice President of the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers.

Sabine Levet is Senior Lecturer in French in the department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at MIT. She is one of the original authors of the intercultural project Cultura. She has written articles and chapters in books about the development of tools for cross-cultural understanding and has given talks and workshops on intercultural communication, the teaching of culture, and the integration of technology into the foreign language curriculum.

She has worked in a variety of high schools in Western New York for the past 17 years and has taught undergraduate courses in French at SUNY Brockport and a graduate course in French through Empire State College. Candace currently holds the office of 1st Vice President of the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers and is a frequent presenter at both regional and state conferences on the topic of technology integration. A fierce advocate of using technology to enhance World Language instruction, Candace is currently piloting an iPad 1:1 computing initiative at her high school.
