May 14–16, 2015
The Commons Hotel
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

Proposal Deadline: January 15, 2015

Featured Plenary Speakers

The Ninth International Conference on Language Teacher Education welcomes proposals for papers and symposia on all aspects of the education and professional development of language teachers. Papers and symposia may report on data-based research, theoretical and conceptual analyses, or best practices in language teacher education.

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
  • Processes of Language Teacher Education

See detailed information about the conference themes at:
http://www.carla.umn.edu/conferences/LTE2015/call.html

Types of Sessions

  • Symposia (2 hours): A symposium provides an opportunity for a group of individuals (typically three to five) to propose a specific issue or topic in the field of language teacher education and examine it from a variety of perspectives.
  • Paper Sessions (25-minute papers): A paper involves a 25-minute presentation on a topic related to one of the four themes. Papers will be grouped thematically when possible.
  • Discussion Sessions (55 minutes): Discussion Sessions address a topic best pursued through extended dialogue among participants. These sessions will begin with a short (10 minute) informal presentation; the remaining time will be devoted to discussion moderated by the presenter/facilitator.

Note: All proposals should be appropriate for an audience of language teacher educators and fit within one of the four themes listed above.

Proposal Deadline: January 15, 2015
