The Eleventh 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 empirical research, theoretical and conceptual analyses, or practices in language teacher education.

The mission of this unique biennial 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/world language teaching; bilingual education; immersion education; indigenous and minority language education; heritage 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
Practices of Language Teacher Education

Types of Sessions

Symposia (2 hours): A symposium provides an opportunity for a group of individuals (maximum six) to propose a specific issue or topic in the field of language teacher education and examine it from a variety of perspectives. Total presentation time is limited to one hour to ensure that at least half of the session engages presenters and the audience in extended dialogue.

Papers (25 minutes): A paper involves a 25-minute presentation on a topic related to one of the four themes (maximum three presenters). Papers will be grouped thematically when possible. Grouped paper presentation sessions will include three papers followed by 30 minutes of questions and discussion after all of the papers have been presented.

All proposals must address an audience of language teacher educators and fit within one of the four conference themes listed above.
