The theme, “Crafting Communities of Learners” celebrates the role of language centers, instructors, and campus technologists not only in supporting the academic success of language students through informed use of technology, but also in creating bridges across cultures and constituencies. The International Association for Language Learning Technology (IALLT) is a professional organization devoted to the advancement of instructional technology in the teaching and learning of languages, literatures and cultures. The biennial IALLT conference attracts participants from around the world and offers an international perspective on the future of technology in language learning. This conference will be of particular interest to K-16 language instructors, to staff affiliated with media centers and language resource centers, and to developers of hardware and software applicable to language learning. In today’s world of mobile devices and nearly ubiquitous wireless access, students do not have far to go to access a wealth of information about languages and cultures. From authentic user-generated content on social media sites to the latest commercial products for independent study to Open Educational Resources created by language professionals, the options for learning languages have never been greater. Informed use of technology provides an opportunity for students to engage meaningfully with distant cultures, inspiring a lifelong love for languages that goes far beyond the classroom. SUGGESTED TOPICS Although no technology conference is complete without demonstrations of the latest gadgets, software and digital resources, the range of proposals being sought is quite broad. Presenters are welcomed to propose more than one session. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: Innovative Practices in K-12 Language and Cultural Learning New Frameworks for Distance Education and Telecollaboration Technologies and Social Networks for Language Learning Language Learning and Communities Outside the Classroom Evolving roles of Language Centers and Programs Diversity Inclusion and Cultural Identities in Language Programs Best Practices in Computer-Assisted Language Learning Professional Development Solutions and Challenges Language Technology Center Administration Online and Hybrid Language Learning Augmented Reality, Virtual Environments and Gaming in Language Learning Ownership, Publication, and Use in Technological Environments Legal Issues of Student Privacy and ADA Compliance Mobile Language Learning SESSION TYPES Please consider proposing a presentation of one or more of the following six types: 2-hour pre-conference workshop 50-minute panel presentation 50-minute presentation 25-minute presentation 7-minute lightning talks Poster presentation Workshops provide an opportunity for hands-on exploration and problem solving around a core challenge. Participants focus on a tool, platform or concept for two hours. Panels bring together participants working separately but in an area of common concern. Panelists should include a mix of individuals working in areas of research, theory, and practice. In order to allow time for audience questions and interaction, panels should include no more than three members. Presentations highlight the work of individuals and small teams. Presentations should provide an introduction to a specific problem and a description/demonstration of a proposed solution. Presenters should allow time for audience questions and interaction during the allotted time. Lightning Talks are brief presentations on a strategy for teaching a specific point of language and/or culture using technology. Lightning talks will be grouped together in sessions. Poster presentations are intended to be highly interactive, with the opportunity for the presenter to exchange ideas one-on-one or in small groups with attendees. Posters will be on display throughout the conference, and a special conference session will be set aside for presenters to explain their work and to answer questions. Presenters are encouraged to provide handouts with contact information for those wishing to follow up after the conference. Location ELT events noreply@eltevents.com Australia/Sydney public
