World (non-English) language teachers in the state of Iowa gather together once a year at the two-day Iowa World Language Association conference. At this conference, they participate in workshops about best practices in teaching world languages, hear from prestigious keynote speakers about up-to-the minute theory and pedagogy in the field, and network and discuss with teachers from across Iowa and the Midwest. This professional development program will provide teachers with new information, frameworks, and practices to improve their teaching and their students’ learning about other languages and cultures.
Fee and Credit Options: The fee for receiving one ILRU (license renewal credit) is $50.00. No half-credits or double credits are possible, and there can be no substitutions for the requirements.
Capstone Project: After the conference, participants will need to complete an online survey in order to report about their experiences at the conference. Participants who complete all check-ins will be emailed the link to the survey after the conference. Completing the survey will take about one hour. This survey will address their learning experiences at the conference, their plans for applying their new knowledge, and any other reflections. They will be asked to report reflections on each session that they attended as well as the keynote speeches. This will be due one week after the conference concludes, by Saturday, October 20, 2018.
