As emerging technologies and globalization conspire to make education more international, the theme of this year's Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture -- 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; enhance the vitality of international student and educator networks; improve pedagogical practices to facilitate language learning, cultural awareness, and 21st-century career readiness; demonstrate the value of inquiry-based learning across a variety of contexts; promote global citizenship and international development; foster inclusivity and cultural responsiveness; ensure fair and valid uses of gatekeeping exams with 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 in these areas and others, 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.
