Expanding Our Horizons: Seventh International Conference on Language Teacher Education

Starts:  May 19, 2011 00:00 (CT)
Ends:  May 21, 2011 00:00 (CT)

The mission of the conference is to address the education of teachers of all languages, at all instructional and institutional levels, and in all the many national and international contexts in which this takes place, including: English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) instruction; foreign/modern/world language teaching; bilingual education; immersion education; indigenous and minority language education; and the teaching of less commonly taught languages. The conference aims to bring together teacher educators from these many contexts to discuss and share research, theory, and best practices and to initiate and sustain meaningful professional dialogue across languages, levels, and settings. The conference will focus on the following four broad themes:

  • The Knowledge Base of Language Teacher Education;
  • Social, Cultural, and Political Contexts of Language Teacher Education;
  • Collaborations in Language Teacher Education; and
  • Processes of Language Teacher Education
