Educators from across Western Pennsylvania are expected to attend the November 7, 2017, conference, including world and classical languages teachers, English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers, social studies teachers, music teachers, art teachers, administrators, and others. One of the main focuses of the conference is to help educators foster innovative classroom connections.

Highlights of the program include a keynote speaker, breakout sessions lead by Pittsburgh area high school and university educators, and vendors offering various information on world languages and classroom connections. The keynote speaker will be the Chair of the Department of Instruction and Learning at the University of Pittsburgh, Richard Donato, Ph.D.
