The School of Education at Virginia International University
invites your proposals for the 2016 Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture
Reimagining International Education: 
Interdisciplinary Approaches to Language, Learning, and Culture
to be held March 25-26, 2016 on VIU’s campus in Fairfax, VA

As emerging technologies and globalization conspire to make education more international, the theme of this year’s CLLC, Reimagining International Education, seeks to explore how we, as internationally minded educators, might be able to shape the development of international education in productive and exciting ways.

CLLC 2016 will encourage conference participants to ask, among many other questions, how we can encourage multilingualism and multiliteracies (including digital literacy); improve pedagogical practices to enhance the learning of language, culture, and 21st-century career readiness; demonstrate the value of inquiry-based learning across a variety of contexts worldwide; promote global citizenship and international development; foster inclusivity and cultural responsiveness; increase the vitality of international student and educator networks; ensure fair and valid uses of gatekeeping exams that have implications for global student mobility; support the development of teachers’ professional identities and feelings of empowerment; and bridge gaps between classrooms and communities worldwide.

Through the sharing of best practices and emerging trends, our goal is to facilitate a thought-provoking, perspective-widening, solutions-oriented dialogue on the future of international education that acknowledges and embraces the interactions between language, learning, and culture.
