Subject: L'Enseignement_à_l'ère_de_la_communication, appel a communications


Nous serions tres heureux si vous pouviez circuler l'annonce ci-dessous qui
concerne un appel a communications pour la conference citee en objet.

L'Institut National des Telecommunications participe depuis janvier 1996 a
un projet ACTS dont l'objectif et la conception, le developpement, et
l'experimentation d'un dispositif multimedia pour l'apprentissage des
langues etrangeres qui relira trois sites europeens d'enseignement superieur
par un reseau haut debit. Le consortium LEVERAGE regroupe des universitaires
et industriels qui mettent en commun leur diverse expertise pour realiser un
projet pedagogique innovant, s'appuyant sur la technologie de pointe.

Dans le cadre de notre mission de dissemination, le consortium organise un
colloque qui adressera le theme, "L'Education a l'ere de la communication".
Le texte ci-après en presente les details. J'attache egalement le texte dans
un document word.

Je vous remercie de votre participation.
