Inspiring foreign language teaching assistants.
Assistant Secretary Ann Stock's participation was a highlight of the 2011 Fulbright FLTA Mid-Year Conference in Washington, D.C. Her speech recognized FLTAs' contributions at U.S. colleges and universities, and encouraged participants to capitalize on their time in the United States. Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board Chair-elect Tom Healy also spoke.
Other highlights included a poster session with approximately 30 exhibits spotlighting participants' cultures and their experiences in the United States. The conference included interactive presentations by ECA's Office of Alumni Affairs and Office of English Language Programs, and a luncheon with Department staff, including representatives of ECA and the regional bureaus. A talent show featured 13 performances by the participants, and 10 FLTAs representing each region of the world visited Capitol Hill.
