February 1st, 2019

The Tulane University Language Learning Center and the School of Liberal Arts invites foreign language instructors to submit abstracts for the 2019 Foreign Language Symposium: Innovative and Integrative Uses of Technology on Saturday, April 6.

The goal of this symposium is to bring Tulane University foreign language instructor community together to share foreign language teaching ideas, methods and practices. We intend to create a space for workshopping ideas and we are looking for presentations that showcase hands-on practical classroom applications of ideas. The symposium is open to all foreign language instructors; graduate students are strongly encouraged to submit a proposal.

Deadline for abstract submission: February 1, 2019.

Proposals may be directly or indirectly related to this year‘€™s theme, Innovative and Integrative Uses of Technology. However, proposals may also include other relevant areas of foreign language teaching, including:
  • Successful, impactful teaching techniques and strategies
  • Best practices for communicative, TPR, task-based, multiliteracies, content-based instruction, etc.
  • Innovative approaches to teaching communicative skills, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation,
  • Pragmatics, social practices, culture, literature, films, visual analysis, etc.
  • Development of cultural and/or intercultural competence, cultural humility, global citizenship
  • Innovative use of technology and thoughtful technology integration
  • Assessment
  • Curriculum development/curriculum redesign for a globalizing, interconnected world
  • Language pedagogy design and praxis for social justice and civic engagement

Proposals should include a one-page description of the presentation and the name(s) and contact information of the (co-)presenter(s).
