Conference: Learning and Teaching Language

To conclude each MA in Teaching (ESOL, ESL, Spanish, French), students convene a conference for language teachers. In May, students presented their workshops, papers, and demonstrations as well as served on committees for the program, plenaries, keynote speakers, registration, technical support, and social events.  A list of the presentations and presenters follows.
