planning, and language politics

Preference will be given to scholarly, creative, and innovative presentations.

Session Types:

Research-based Paper Presentations will include a 20 minute discussion
on new research by the presenter followed by a 10 minute Q&A
interaction with conference participants.

Practice-oriented Presentations  will include a 30 minute discussion,
or group-led modeling exercise of a teaching practice that applies
current research to the classroom.

Poster Presentations will be displayed during the lunch breaks and can
be used to gain valuable feedback on theses, dissertations, or
research. More information on poster presentations can be found at:
