The Goethe Institute/DAAD organized the event “Fachaustausch zur Zusammenarbeit von Hochschulen und Mittlern im Bereich Deutsch” on November 11th-13th. The goal of this mini-conference was to discuss the current status of German language program, and exchange ideas and strategies about networking and future cooperation among ‘Ortslektoren”, diversity and sustainability of language programs in the US. A group of about 40 professors and lecturers of German, and representatives from the Goethe Institute and DAAD participated in the event. Some highlights from the conference were two presentations on a German language program that moved their entire program online and an innovative curriculum for students pursuing a double major in German and engineering.
