Symposium on Language Pedagogy in Higher Education, Oct 2-3, 2020

03 Jun 2020 12:58 PM | Robert L. Davis (Administrator)

Due to COVID-19, the Symposium on Language Pedagogy in Higher Education will take place online (via Zoom) and will be free for everyone.

It will still take place on October 2 & 3, 2020, and our invited speakers have all kindly agreed to present virtually:
*       Dr. Bill VanPatten will give a plenary address on "Barriers to Innovation in Language Program Direction"
*       Dr. Claudia Fern√°ndez will facilitate a workshop on "Re-designing the Basic Language Curriculum for the 21st Century"
*       Dr. Cori Crane will do a workshop on "Working Towards Perspective Transformation: Fostering Critical Reflection in the Language Classroom"
The symposium will also feature a special workshop (also online!) for language program directors and coordinators on "Conflict Resolution: A Guide to Crucial Conversations." 

For more information about the symposium, please visit: solphe2020.wixsite.com/uiuc

Registration opens in August. For now, I am reaching out to encourage you to submit a proposal. We have extended the deadline to submit an abstract until June 15. We welcome submissions from language program directors, graduate students, and faculty of all ranks and languages, for 20-minute presentations. Proposals may be either practice-oriented or research-oriented, as long as they have practical implications that may be relevant to different language programs in post-secondary settings. For the submission requirements or to submit an abstract, please go to:
