Call for proposals:

National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages
13th International Conference

Moving LCTLs to a New Professional Level
April 22-25, 2010
Madison, WI

The Thirteenth Annual Meeting of the National Council of Less Commonly
Taught Languages (NCOLCTL) is scheduled for April 22-25, 2010, in
Madison, WI (with a pre-conference workshop scheduled for Thursday,
April 22th). Proposals are solicited for individual papers, colloquia,
and poster sessions. Proposals should fall broadly within the
conference theme, “Moving LCTLs to a New Professional Level." Although
proposed presentations may focus on individual languages, they should
address issues that clearly relate to more than just that one
language. Presentations may address the linkage between language study
and professionalization, curriculum and material development,
methodology, bilingual education, heritage language learners,
autonomous and self-instructional settings, outreach and advocacy, and
the use of technology in teaching languages. Other topics such as
teacher training, professional development, research, and assessment
are also welcome.
