The LEARN workshops provide foreign language professionals from U.S. Government (USG)-affiliated schools and institutions a venue to interact with their colleagues where they can:

 

·Share their knowledge, experience, unique perspective, and educational best practices with peers

·Discuss and explore issues related to the science and technology of foreign language education and learning

·Develop networks to create communities of practice

·Reduce duplication of effort in areas such as curriculum design, course delivery, and assessment

 

This LEARN Workshop is open to foreign language professionals including instructors and course developers from any USG-affiliated institution.

 

The main themes for this workshop are: (1) polyglots and how they learn diverse languages successfully, (2) unique perspectives in training speakers with proficiency in a wide variety of languages, (3) understanding the nature of multilingualism and how it impacts foreign language learning.

 

For the purposes of this conference:

· A “polyglot” has high ability levels in many languages (often these languages are unrelated) and makes a habit out of learning new languages.

· A “multilingual” has language ability in 3 or more languages.

 

Important Dates:

· Abstract Submission due:July 3, 2019

· Notification to Authors:July 11, 2019

 

To submit an abstract, please visit: www.fbcinc.com/LEARN

 

Funding for any associated travel expenses will be the responsibility of the attendees’ organization.
