Call for Proposals: AFLA 2016

Submit a session proposal for AFLA 2016

“Pique Their Proficiency” is the theme of the Alaskans For Language Acquisition (AFLA) 2016 Annual Conference. The conference will take place at the University of Alaska-Anchorage from September 23-25, 2016. It will feature sessions, workshops, vendor exhibits, and unlimited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues from across the state.

The 2016 conference committee is seeking proposals for 50 minute sessions and 2 hour workshops that relate to the themes of interest and proficiency and reflect best practice and current research. Proposals should address one or more of the following questions:

  • How do we create interest in language learning?
  • How do we sustain interest in language learning as students progress through our programs?
  • How can we engage our students in class and on the ‘path to proficiency’?
  • How can we sustain engagement throughout the school year?
  • What is proficiency (linguistic and/or cultural)?
  • What does proficiency look like in each of the three modes of communication, and how do we address each one (interpretive, presentational, interpersonal)?
  • How can our students improve their linguistic and/or cultural proficiency?
  • How do we assess proficiency?
  • How can we maintain and improve our own proficiency?

Session proposals may be submitted by an individual or by a cohort. The committee is seeking proposals that address the topics within one of the following target areas:

  • Activities and strategies
  • Advocacy and policy
  • Assessment
  • Cross content
  • Culture and global competency
  • Curriculum and articulation
  • Professional development
