The conference theme for 2016 is Growing a Comprehensible Classroom and will be held at Nevada High School in Nevada, Iowa on Saturday, June 18th.  The conference will offer three session types: Beginner, Experienced, and EdCamp CI.  Beginner sessions are for those world language teachers who have not been to a CI/TPRS training, who have only dabbled in CI/TPRS practices, and those who are not completely comfortable with the basics of CI/TPRS.  Experienced sessions are for world language teachers who have been to a CI/TPRS training, who have used CI/TPRS at least a full year in all their classes, and those who feel comfortable with basic strategies.  EdCamp CI sessions are designed to be more open-ended and responsive to what attendees want to discuss.   

This conference was created by Elizabeth Dentlinger and Kim Huegerich in response to a growing, local interest in comprehensible input, a sense of responsibility to help those who need training in the method, and a desire to collaborate with other practicing CI teachers.
