In recent years, language education has been enriched by interdisciplinary partnerships ranging from information sciences to environmental humanities to digital pedagogy. The Language Educator Symposium 2022 seeks to highlight the process for productive partnerships with a keen eye towards content-based language instruction. At the same time, discussions can ignite new ideas that foster interdisciplinary partnerships across departments, schools, and institutions.
