CODOFIL becomes an IFprof Partner Institution [fr]
On Monday March 5 2018, the Council for the development of French in Louisiana (CODOFIL) signed an agreement to become an IFprof partner.
The Consul general of France in New Orleans, Vincent Sciama, signed the agreement on behalf of IFprofs with Peggy Feehan, the newly-appointed director of CODOFIL.
IFProfs is a social network for French education professionals: Teachers and professors who teach French and in French, school principals, department heads, librarians, trainers, coordinators, etc.
Developed and maintained by the Institut français, the agency in charge of implementing France’s cultural action abroad under the supervision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this tool is completely free and draws on the contributions of its members.
Thanks to its search engine specifically designed for educational purposes, IFprofs users can easily find useful ressources to implement directly into the classroom.

IFprof also allows users around the world to communicate directly with one another and share their professional experiences.
It also offers access to news and information (such as colloquium, job vacancies, call for projects...) from IFprof partner institutions: AEFE, Alliance Française Paris Île-de-France, Fle.fr, and now CODOFIL.
As CODOFIL recruits over 200 francophone teachers (including 150 French teachers) from France, Belgium, Canada, Mali, The Ivory Coast, Senegal... it makes perfect sense for the Louisiana agency for francophone affairs to become an IFprof partner institution.
The "Partner" profile will allow CODOFIL to diffuse editorial content across the world to all IFprof members.
As of the beginning of 2018, IFprofs counts over 15,000 members across 50 countries.
The agreement was signed in the presence of Michele Braud, World Languages Coordinator at the Louisiana Department of Education, Michele Haj-Broussard, President of the Louisiana Consortium of Immersion School (LCIS), and Nicole Boudreaux, Vice-President of LCIS.
