Twelfth International Language Teacher Education Conference

Theorizing Practice, Practicing Theory

May 30–June 1, 2024
The Graduate Hotel
Minneapolis, MN

The mission of this unique conference is to address the education of teachers of all languages, at all instructional and institutional levels, and in all the national and international contexts in which this takes place, including: English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) instruction; foreign/modern/world language teaching; bilingual/multilingual education; immersion education; indigenous language education; heritage language education; and the teaching of less commonly taught languages. The conference thus aims to bring together a range of teacher educators to discuss and share research, theory, and recommended practices and to initiate and sustain meaningful professional dialogue across languages, levels, and settings on the topic of language teacher education. 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

The call for papers will be announced in September. Stay tuned!
