Symposium on Language Pedagogy in Higher Education

University of Illinois at Chicago

Due to Covid-19 the Symposium will take place online


The goal of this symposium is to serve as a professional development forum tailored to the needs of post-secondary language educators, which will not only help to enhance the quality of language programs but also provide opportunities for inter-institutional collaboration. During the symposium, we will host talks and sessions about different aspects of language teaching and program administration in higher education settings.
