The School of Education at Virginia International University invites proposals for the 2017 Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture!

THEME: Enhancing and Advancing Teacher Education: Professional Identities, Communities, Beliefs, and Practices

DATES: April 7-8, 2017
LOCATION: Virginia International University, Fairfax, VA, USA
WEBSITE: https://conference.viu.edu/cllc
CALL FOR PROPOSALS: http://conference.viu.edu/cllc/content/call-for-proposals

OVERVIEW: In the spirit of promoting self-driven, collaborative, meaningful, and sustainable professional development, CLLC 2017 focuses on the professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices of educators and how they can all be harnessed to enhance and advance the lifelong learning we recognize as the ideal meaning of the phrase "teacher education." Our goal is to involve pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators, administrators, researchers, and other professionals at all stages of their careers in a multidirectional sharing of expertise and experiences that will contribute to future exploratory practice and professional growth.


Dr. Arieh Sherris (Texas A&M University-Kingsville) on agency and activism in situated teacher practices

Dr. Rashi Jain (Montgomery College) on translingually responsive pedagogy

Dr. Joy Kreeft Peyton (Center for Applied Linguistics) on collaborative international online professional development


Proposals for paper and poster presentations, practice-oriented sessions and workshops, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited in areas related to the themes of educators' professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices until December 5, 2016.

Presentation topics need not address the topic of teacher education directly; we welcome proposals on anything that educators themselves would consider worthwhile for enhancing their own and their colleagues' professional development and daily practices.
